Location: Western and Central Aleutian Islands
Timing: June - July
Project: To estimate survival, reproductive rates, and movements of Steller sea lions, direct and indirect (from remote camera installations) observations of sea lions were made in the western and central Aleutian Islands and the Delarof Islands. An uncrewed aerial system were used to supplement crewed aircraft aerial surveys to obtain sea lion counts for determining abundance and distribution.
