More sea lions!

Luis Huckstadt in Santiago, Chile - We are expanding our work with sea lions in the Southern Hemisphere. During the past month of July, we had the opportunity to deploy a new set of satellite tags on sea lions, this time in Chile.

Four down, six more to go!

Luis Huckstadt and Stephen Tavoni at Isla de Lobos, Uruguay-- We have made some progress now with our recaptures, despite the sea lions’ attempts to make our work harder than it already is. So far we’ve recaptured instruments from 4 females, and in doing so we have had a blast figuring out ways to sneak, crawl and surprise these animals before they go into the water!

Recapturing South American Sea Lions

Luis Huckstadt and Stephen Tavoni at Isla de Lobos, Uruguay-- We had a very early start Wednesday, waking up at 5:00 am so that we could be at the port in Punta del Este, Uruguay by 6:00 am to catch the boat that was going to take us to Isla de Lobos.
