Census of fur seal pups at Cape Shirreff, Livingston Island, Antarctica from 1995 to 2012 (NCEI Accession 0186008)

browse graphicPreview graphic
A Cape-wide census of Antarctic fur seal (Arctocephalus gazella) pups (live and dead) occurs every year once pupping is over. The census occurs in the last days of December, on a day when conditions and visibility are favorable. Cape Shirreff is located on Livingston Island, in the South Shetlands off the Antarctic Peninsula.
