What episode is it in?
The Our Planet seal moment takes place in episode 2, which is called “Frozen Worlds”.
It’s definitely worth watching the whole episode. However, if you just fancy catching this hotly discussed scene, skip to roughly 25 minutes in and enjoy.
Episode 2 focuses its lens on polar bears, walruses, penguins and, of course, seals.
Our Planet: Seal scene
Our Planet seal footage has captivated audiences.
It shows a group of penguins having to navigate through a huge congregation of female elephant seals.
The way their course is photographed is so profoundly striking. Yet, it’s the fight between two enormous male seals which truly made jaws drop.
These two behemoths engaging in conflict for access to the females is staggering to watch.

What is the message?
The episode – as do the others – captures, up close, the behaviour of a range of Earth’s creatures.
On the whole, though, Our Planet wants us to reflect on our own impact as a species.
It starkly captures the planet’s changing environment, and the effect this is having on all living things. It’s important.
