    A pair of young harbor seals recline on the rocks at the Central Park Zoo. They are the first harbor seals born at the Wildlife Conservation Society's aquarium in more than 15 years.

    Harbor seals are being exhibited at the Central Park Zoo for the first time since 2011.

    The Wildlife Conservation Society says the two cuties, Adam and Anson, are natives of Brooklyn. They were the first harbor seals born at the New York Aquarium in more than 15 years.

    Though not endangered, harbor seals are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act.

    They can sometimes be seen off the coast of New York City and Long Island.

    The Wildlife Conservation Society is working to protect harbor seals and other local marine species through a conservation program called New York Seascape.
