Picture of the Day for 7 August 2002

Today, the predator groups were quite busy.  The morning started out with the penguin  group catching birds and then moved on to the seal group, which caught two crabeater seals and one leopard seal, and then finished with the bird group catching additional penguins.  This image shows the seal team weighing a crabeater seal after they have placed a satellite linked dive recorder on it.  The tag transmits information on the animals dive pattern and location.  Photo by Dan Costa.
