Winter distribution and haul-out behaviour of female Antarctic fur seals from South Georgia

first_imgTelemetry-based techniques have revealed the foraging patterns of many land breeding marine predators, especially during the summer breeding season. However, during the winter, when freed from the constraints of provisioning their young, such animals are more difficult to track. Using geolocation (Global Location Sensing, GLS) loggers and satellite tags (Platform Terminal Transmitters, PTTs) we successfully tracked 16 female Antarctic fur seals from South Georgia during the austral winter. The majority of females concentrated their winter foraging in the waters around the breeding beaches (90% of locations were within 510 km). However, as the winter progressed, two of the seals spent a number of months to the south, in and around the seasonal ice edge, and five seals migrated north and northwest from South Georgia. Four of these seals clearly crossed the Polar Front and two reached the Patagonian Shelf, apparently exploiting the continental shelf edge and the Subantarctic Front. Activity (saltwater immersion) data suggested that seals spent the majority of the winter months at sea but there were rare occasions when seals hauled out, either on land or on ice floes. We obtained data from two individuals that enabled us to compare the performance of PTT and GLS devices. For these seals the mean distance between GLS and PTT locations was 122 and 132 km. Although the recovery rates were low in this study, given improvements in attachment techniques, we have demonstrated that these micro-geolocation loggers provide an ideal tool with which to study the long-term dispersal of diving marine predators at larger scales. This is the first study to show that female fur seals from South Georgia remain at sea for almost the entirety of the non-breeding winter period. Using land-based observations it has been assumed that the fur seal population at South Georgia has little temporal overlap with the krill fishery that operates mostly during the winter months in this region. We have shown that a large proportion of the female fur seals that breed on South Georgia potentially remain in the vicinity of the island and are thus in direct competition with the region’s fisheries activities.last_img read more

Sturgill Simpson Bucks The CMA Awards By Busking On The Sidwalk Outside The Arena [Video]

first_imgSturgill Simpson is a rare breed in the world of country music, part of a relatively recent crop of artists whose work is rooted in country but inflected with elements of rock, blues, and soul, making it appealing to a broader demographic of fans than the more traditional Nashville fare. In addition to winning this past year’s GRAMMY Award for “Best Country Album”, Simpson’s 2017 album A Sailor’s Guide To Earth was nominated for the overall “Album of the Year” honor, alongside Adele, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, and Drake–although we get the distinct feeling he’s the kind of guy who doesn’t really give a shit about awards.Watch Sturgill Simpson’s Rocking Performance On Saturday Night LiveBeyond the music, a big part of Simpson’s appeal is his devil-may-care swagger and down-to-Earth demeanor. Last night, ahead of the CMA Awards at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena–country music’s biggest night–Simpson made light of the evening’s pomp and circumstance by taking to the street outside the venue for an impromptu busking session. You can watch the full video of Sturgill Simpson’s laid-back busking session outside the CMA Awards below via Simpson’s Facebook page:Just one more reason we can’t get enough of Sturgill Simpson…[h/t – Wide Open Country][Cover photo – Adam Gold] As Simpson remarked to begin the session, streamed live on his Facebook page, “Finally made it, guys…the big show. They’re all out of seats, I couldn’t get a ticket, so I thought I’d come down here and play some country music, since we’re celebrating it tonight in Nashville, Tennessee.” He had come to the arena armed with an acoustic guitar, his GRAMMY statuette in his guitar case (according to him, the first time he’d taken it out of the box) and two signs–one reading “I don’t take requests, but I take questions about anything you want to talk about because fascism sucks” and one reading “Struggling’ country singer. Anything helps. (All donations go to the ACLU.) God Bless America.”Taking things at a leisurely pace, Simpson spoke briefly about the awards show going on in the arena behind him, laughing about how little he knows about who’d actually been nominated as a megaphone-weilding preacher on the street droned away. He did, however, give a nod to Jason Isbell as his choice for “the big prize” (Album of the Year) and remarked on how “it’s even cooler that he’s not here” (Note: Isbell wound up losing out on the award to Chris Stapleton, member of country’s eclectic new guard).He also shot the shit with a small group of fans on the sidewalk (and thousands via his Facebook page) and played a few tunes, including his own “Turtles All The Way Down The Line,” which featured a hilarious off-the-cuff interjection: “The world would be a lot better place if Donald Trump would smoke some DMT.” Simpson also spoke about various polarizing political topics as gun violence in the wake of the Las Vegas attack, while the CMA Awards only briefly referenced the recent and devastating events.last_img read more
