The Seattle Aquarium is hiring four camp counselors (CCs) to join the summer camp team! CCs carry out the daily procedures of camp while occasionally supporting the lead instructor in administrative tasks. They act as role models and mentors in marine science, conservation and empathy. CCs work with all ages of campers while leading groups of up to 11 (usually 10).Read more
As part of ongoing research studying northern fur seal foraging ecology, our program has equipped fur seals from St. Paul Island, AK, with satellite-linked dive recorders and video cameras to record prey capture events. These data will be used to 1) quantify fur seal foraging success in relation to prey availability, 2) identify prey species and age-class consumed, and 3) validate the use of accelerometer data as a tool to indirectly measure prey capture.Read more
