Researchers from NOAA's National Marine Mammal Lab track the migrating fur seals to understand where they feed in winter months and what marine resources they depend on for survival. It's early November and the team affixes a satellite transmitter to an adult female. They won't see her back on the Pribilof Islands until next July, and they hope the tag will stay on throughout winter and spring. Back at their offices in Seattle, the researchers begin tracking tagged animals via satellites.
