About This Project

Pacific Harbor seals use land to give birth to pups and molt, but once they return to the ocean to forage many seals do not survive. We have been studying this subspecies in Mexico since 2008. We describe their distribution, population size, and feeding habits. The goal of this new project is to describe where seals are traveling by using satellite tags. By knowing where the seals go we can identify important areas for marine conservation.
