Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 42 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, Scplemlior JJ, MOTHER LOVE Mahari, a gorillo ol the Cincinnati zoo, cuddles her new baby, the fourth birlh for gorillas al the 200 in Ihe past 20 months. This is Ihe first lime that a female gorilla hai actually nursed her baby. Zoo veterinarians previously had to take the youngsters and care for them until they were old enough to feed themselves. Harp seal represents a variety of puzzles By BOB INGRAHAM OTTAWA (CP) Most Ca- nadians are familiar with the East Coast harp seal and its cuddly white pups, as well as with "the controversial spring seal hunt. Few, however, are aware that the same marine animals represent for tcientists a vari- ety of puzzles which slowly are being unravelled. The harp seal, for example, can stop (he flow of blood to cue of its flippers. And it can dive as deep as fi5H feet and stay submerged lor as long as 30 minutes. These are some of the mys- teries being studied by scien- tists at the University of Guelph. For the last five years. Dr. Keith Ronald, chairman of the department of zoology at Guelph, has headed 14 other zoologists i n experimental work on the harp seal. Tire team's work has been supported by in grants from the National Re- search Council and is reported in the current issue of Science Dimension, an MIC publica- tion. M.-W ENVIES SEAL Man, Dr. Ronald says, is envious of some of Ihe phy- siological feats of the harp seal, such as the ability lo regulate its heartbeat and blood circulation. To learn how the seal is able to control these func- tions, the scientists fly baby seals Lo Guelph, Ont., from the Gulf of SI. Lawrence each year before the seal hunt be- gins. By studying the seal and its life cycle the scientists have come closer lo answers for their questions. They have learned, for ex- ample, that they must be quick and accurate in obtain- ing blood samples from a flip- per. If a scientist misses a vein on his first try the seal immediately diverts the blood away from the flipper. "For several Sci- ence Dimension says, "at- tempts at drawing blood are futile." This reaction, the zoologists have found, is part of the rea- son the seal is a marathon diver. During a dive a seal shunts blood away from its body and into the vital heart and brain. A huge blood vessel running along the inside of the spine acts as the man passageway for blood during a long dive. The seal also can change its heartbeat, slowing it to as lit- tle as 10 beats a minute from more than 180. The change takes only a fraction of a sec- ond. During a dive, an adult seal slows its heart lo about eight beats a minute from about 30. The control of such mecha- nisms in man would be inval- uable in heart surgery and anesthcsiology, Science Di- mension says. The blood of the seal also enables it to live successfully in the sea. The blood lias a high con- centration of oxygen-carrying hemoglobin and the seal has one-third more blood than a human of comparable weight. But even with the specially adapted circulatory system, the seal cannot store enough oxygen to last through a minute dive. The Guelph scientists have learned that the seal partly compensates for this by utiliz- ing myoglobin, a red pigment which, like hemoglobin, also stores oxygen. The myoglobin is contained in muscles and supplies oxygen directly lo them during a dive. In addition, the .seal brings into play a carbohydrate called g 1 y c o g c n which is stored in the muscles and liver. In a dive, the glycogcn breaks down to lactic acid and at the same lime produces energy" lo keep the seal going. After the dive, the lactic acid is converted back lo glycogcn. Despite Ihe partial unravell- ing of the seal's secrets, (lie scientists at Guelph still face a Ing task. This year, fur example. Ihcv have identified 24 distinct un- j dei-waler calls made by seals. Further research in Guelph and in the Gulf of St. Law- rence (vill altcmpl 10 deter- mine whether the slill-myste- rious harp seals can commu- nicate with one another. Farmers enter tourist trade By JI.M NKAVHS EDMONTON (CP) Farm families are opening Llieir homes and lands lo urban resi- dents for summer vaealions, creating a and lucrative tourist industry. In Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, farm families have formed associations to offer city dwellers vacations in rustic sel- linfis. Laura Castleman of Benlley, been doing this sort of thing for friends and relatives for years and it's kind of nice to get paid for a change OI'TKR In Manitoba, farmers in the Killarncy and Slonewal] areas offer camping spots, washroom facilities, running water and "good old-fashioned hospital- ity."
