Saimaannorppa, Saimaa ringed seal. They are among the most endangered seals in the world.

The Saimaa seal  lives only in Finland's biggest lake, Lake Saimaa, in the eastern part of the country. It is a subspecies of the ringed seal that became a fresh water mammal some 9,500 years ago when ice melted after the ice age and it became trapped in the lake.    It has suffered from man's actions, in the form of pollution in the 1960s and the 1970s, and more recently from warmer winters and fishing.

Here's Norppa. A furry gray seal that lives only in parts of lake Saimaa in Finland. There's only about 150 of them in the world and now you can watch some of them live! (Link in comments)
