Location: Iliamna Lake and Aleutian Islands
Timing: July – September
Project: Aerial photographic surveys will be conducted using manned aircraft to estimate the distribution and abundance of harbor seals in Alaska. Survey effort will focus on at-risk harbor seal populations that represent especially small or reduced stocks with very limited data (e.g., Iliamna Lake and the central and western Aleutian Islands).
