Requested Tracking Map
From 27 January to 10 February 2020, we received locations for 3 ringed and 7 spotted seals. All three ringed seals were in heavy ice (>80%) from the northeast Chukchi Sea to the northern Bering Sea, near St. Lawrence Island. All seven spotted seals were generally near the inner-edge of the heavy ice in the central Bering Sea and were distributed between Anadyr Gulf and Bristol Bay; four of the spotted seals were also near the 100-m isopleth. Seal movements can also be viewed on the Animal Telemetry Network ( Sea ice data are courtesy of the U.S. National Ice Center, dated 10 February 2020 (
