10/10/2010: "Track a Seal"


ig_sds_Seal_Tracking-001 (39k image)Following up on a story: "Does the rehabilitation of stranded harbor seal pups really do any good?" the SeaDoc team now has 10 wild harbor seal pups -and 8 rehabilitated seals- tagged and are tracking them using satellite and VHF transmitters. Interested in what is happening? Track A Seal for yourself

A capture team from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and SeaDoc oversaw the capture of the wild seals and the dedicated team at Wolf Hollow invested countless hours rehabilitating the stranded pups and helped SeaDoc outfit them with transmitters.

SeaDoc has two more seals in rehabilitation to instrument and release. and then comes the science of determining if the rehabilitated seals behave and survive like the wild cohort. Interested in what is happening?

SeaDoc aks that if you see a seal with a tranmitter glued onto its back, call them at 752-4167.

This project was made possible thanks to Federal funding through NOAA Fisheries John H. Prescott Marine Mammal Grant program and private SeaDoc donors. Thank you!
