Location: Western and Central Aleutian Islands

Timing: June - July

Funding: NOAA

Project: To estimate survival, reproductive rates, and movements of Steller sea lions, direct and indirect (from remote camera installations) observations of sea lions will be made in the western and central Aleutian Islands and the Delarof Islands. An unmanned aerial system will be used to supplement manned aircraft aerial surveys to obtain sea lion counts for determining abundance and distribution.
