Both bearded seals are in the Chukchi Sea and have stayed in localized areas; B17-01-F (purple square) remains off shore of Utqiaġvik and BS18-01-F (green square) is north of Seward Peninsula, generally near the mouth of Kotzebue Sound. All seven spotted seals are in the Bering Sea. Spotted seal SS18-07-F (purple circle) has moved to the mouth of Norton Sound, generally in heavy ice.
