    The adults moved. After their newborn kids drowned. Three years in a row.

    So no it isn't as if the whole population vanished, but that's still a tough knock.

    We've watched shows on them; they're stoicism personified.

    I don't think it's crass. I also wondered what would likely benefit from the extra protein, because you know something found it and grew stronger from eating it.

    Got me thinking about leopard seals. They usually have a short lifespan because they wear their teeth down during the winter keeping air holes open in the ice. Less ice could mean longer life has they have effective teeth for longer.

    Climate change will produce some winners (just the luck of the draw) but many losers. Less diversity overall.
