Description
Coastal and at sea locations of South American sea lion (Otaria flavescens), fur seals (Arctocephalus australis) and southern elephant seals (Mirounga leonina) along the Patagonian coast of Argentina and Chile. more

Distribution of three species of pinnipeds that breed along the Patagonian coast of Argentina and Chile. Coastal and at sea locations of South American sea lion (Otaria flavescens), fur seals (Arctocephalus australis) and southern elephant seals (Mirounga leonina) were collected during different research projects developed at Centro Nacional Patagónico, Puerto Madryn, Argentina. Information before 1990 comes from published papers. Surveys along the coast were carried out during the implementation of the Patagonian Coastal Zone Management Plan 1992-1996 (Fundación Patagonia Natural and Wildlife Conservation Society - GEF-UNDP). Locations at sea are foraging trips for seals equipped with Argos-linked Platform Transmitter Terminals (PTTs) and Satellite Dive Recorders (SDRs).
