Seal Tracks Via Satellite

Seal tracking on "Atlantic" via WhaleNet

My inner nerd is exulting and frolicking at the moment. Go ahead and bookmark WhaleNet (hosted through Wheelock College). Its a seriously interesting marine resource. While other rescue groups have done a great deal to satellite track and tag released marine mammals and other wildlife the maps for the animals’ locations are not always readily available. Not so on WhaleNet. Right now you can track Snuffy, the harp seal, or view sighting reports for Northern Right Whales in their calving and nursing grounds on the US Atlantic coastline.
