    About This Project

    Studies on marine mammal personalities are scarce, despite research showing that personality can relate to foraging behavior and fitness. This study will adapt a method for evaluating personality type in grey seals for use on northern elephant seals. Relating personality types to satellite tracks and reproductive success will help us understand how these animals respond to changes in their environment, which is particularly important given rapidly changing climatic conditions.
