Event Description: 
On Wednesday, May 8, 2019, at 7:00 p.m., Douglas Krause, a research biologist with NOAA and a Scripps alumnus (PhD '16), will give a free presentation titled, "Leopard seals in focus: Drone photogrammetry provides new perspective on the ecology of an apex predator."  
 
It will be held at Sumner Auditorium, 8595 La Jolla Shores Drive, La Jolla, California (ARGO spelled out on front of auditorium). Please note: Street parking only.
 
Doug's presentation will highlight how Antarctic fur and ice seal populations are responding to a rapidly warming climate in the Antarctic Peninsula. His research identifies the mechanisms through which predator-prey interactions, including hunting tactics, can inform community dynamics along food webs.
 
This should be an extremely interesting presentation, sponsored by the San Diego Chapter of the American Cetacean Society. Hope you and your friends, young and old, can join us!
