Guy left the station around 800 in the morning. We met around noon at the college and debriefed. I came out in the whaler and landed around 1400. I will be here for the month of December.
- There were 3 male elephant seals on Great Race when i arrived, 2 of them are adult including Chunk, the other appears to be adolescent. There was another male elephant seal on West Rock.
- There are more sealions in the reserve than I recall from previous years at this time and they are more present on Great Race as well, including a persistent congregation on and around the jetty.
- 3 ecotour boats after I arrived in the afternoon. Two of them appeared to be within 100 m (DFO setback guideline) of sealions.
