"Yesterday, on September 14, 2020, the team of 25th Ukrainian Antarctic Expedition reported that the first Weddell seal was born on Galindez island, where our station is located. The girl is so far a bit frightened, and she's holding on to her mother," reads the message.

Earlier, in October 2019, Emperor Penguin decided to visit Antarctic Akademik Vernadsky Research Base where polar explorers work annually. The National Antarctic Scientific Center reported that.
