Description
Satellite tracking data from female northern elephant seals. more

Dan Costa's Lab at the University of California Santa Cruz is engaged in a long-term tracking study of northern elephant seals at Ano Nuevo State Reserve. With the help of many graduate students and collaborators, we are investigating a diversity of topics including: habitat-use, foraging ecology, fine-scale behavior, toxin loading, diving physiology, climate change, and ontogeny. We have a diverse team, but welcome additional collaborators. Please contact us if you have interesting ideas for analyses.
