St George Island is one of the Pribilof Islands, out in the middle of the Bering Sea, famous for its wildlife, including all of the bird species and 80% of the world's northern fur seals. This island has a dark-sided Russian history where the locals were made into slaves to work the seal harvesting trade, and nearly putting the seals to extinction. This page will focus on the island and village rather than the wildlife. There are two additional pages on this website that cover the animal wildlife and one that is primarily about the bird population.
