>Two of the USAP stations are on the coast and we see seals and birds and
some times whales.  The animals that live in the Antarctic have no natural
fear of man and they will let you come very close.

All the native animals are protected by a law called the Antarctic
Conservation Act that prevents US personnel from "taking" the animals.
Basically you can not cause the animals to change their naturla behavior.
