Abstract: This video explores individual variation found among Weddell seals, and what those differences might mean for the future of this southernmost mammal on Earth, living in the most pristine marine environment remaining on our planet. The video features interviews on location in the Erebus Bay area of Antarctica's Ross Sea with ecologists Jay Rotella, Bob Garrott, Thierry Chambert, and Jesse DeVoe of the Weddell seal population project research team. Also featured is some truly spectacular underwater footage by Henry Kaiser, courtesy of Jo-Ann Mellish and Project B-470 (NMFS Permit No. 15478 and ACA 2003-12), and lots of Weddell puppies and moms filmed by Mary Lynn Price and other members of the B-009 Weddell research team. The video was edited and produced by Mary Lynn Price. This project video is made possible with funding and support from the National Science Foundation, and the assistance of the United States Antarctic Program. Produced in association with Montana State University.

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 http://WeddellSealScience.com.
