Medny Island Harbor Seals: Research Project Updates

18 Sep — 2022

Since 2019, the Commander Islands National Park has been actively studying the harbor seal or the Far Eastern subspecies of the common seal, listed in the Red Data Book of Russia. In 2021, thanks to a grant from WWF Russia a lot of work was carried out on Bering Island: we installed satellite tags on several animals and sampled them.
