Video: "Weddell Seal Population Ecology"

Every springtime in Antarctica Weddell seals return to Erebus Bay to give birth and raise their new pups. And every year a team of researchers and graduate students based at Montana State University returns to Antarctica to study the ecology of these iconic marine predators in this nearly pristine marine environment. This video features interviews with ecologists Robert Garrott and Jay Rotella, professors in the Ecology Department at Montana State University, and MSU graduate student Jen Mannas. Video production by Mary Lynn Price. More information at
