Space is limited.
Join the Pacific Ocean Education Team (POET) and guest speaker John Maniscalco of the Alaska SeaLife Center to learn more about Ocean Stewardship. After more than 2 decades of study, there is still much disagreement over what caused a major crash in Steller sea lion populations of the northern Pacific Ocean. Nevertheless, a significant growth in numbers has been observed in some regions during the past 15 years, although declines continue in parts of the Aleutian Islands. Past and current population trends, vital rates, diet, and behavior will be discussed with special emphasis on Alaska SeaLife Center studies in the vicinity of Kenai Fjords National Park.
