Use satellite imagery to count Weddell Seals in Antarctica

Logo for Use satellite imagery to count Weddell Seals in Antarctica
Knowing ‘how many’ of any species is a challenge for researchers. In recent years satellites have been used, but there are so many pictures, we are asking classrooms to help. In this activity, students use satellite images taken over time, to see changes in the population of seals within and between seasons. There is background information on Weddell seals, a tutorial on how to count and a file of the images.  New images posted every year provide a long-term data set on the Weddell Seal ... More

This is an opportunity for students to use satallite imagery to count populations of wild animals. In this case, Weddell Seals in Antarctica.  New images will be uploaded every season so classrooms can continue this project on a long term basis.
