WEBSITE - Juan Fernandez Fur Seal Revisited

January News at News at Planeta Vivo has a fairly recent update on the status of the fur seal.
At the beginning of this decade a total census made in Selkirk Island gave a number of 6385 individuals.
This 2003-2004 season a series of playback experiments will be performed with the aim to test the vocal-auditory recognition ability between mothers and pups. At the same time, a similar to previous vocal sound recordings taken in past years by the author, will be obtained for fur seal pups that live close to a freshwater stream.
