Requested Tracking Map
Over the last 14 days we have received transmissions from 4 ringed (solid lines) and 3 bearded (dashed lines) seals. The seals have remained in the same, generally small areas in Kotzebue and Norton sounds, except for one ringed seal that has moved south between Wales and Nome.
