St Paul: Log #1 - Time to pack!

The New England Aquarium has given me an amazing opportunity. Over the course of the next three weeks, I will be able to observe Northern fur seals first hand in the wild! I will be joining a group of researchers from NOAA to take part in their biennial Northern fur seal pup survey on St. Paul Island, AK. The picture below will give you a better idea of exactly where I will be.



Located in the middle of the Bering Sea, we will be spending 21 days on this remote island assessing the status of the Northern fur seal. During that time I will be writing a blog to keep you up to date on what I am doing and seeing. For now though, I better go pack!
