[MARMAM] Request for photos of Phoca vitulina mellonae
monitors at sealwatch.org

Our recent request for Phoca vitulina stejnegeri (Insular seal) images
on this list was well-rewarded, and we would now like to make a similar
request for images of haulout/nursery areas of the Ungava seal (P.v.
mellonae). While there may yet be some dispute about the taxonomic
status of this subspecies -- a photo we had earlier received from
Quebec has proven to be of P.v. concolor -- we would like to be able to
present an image of a seal observed and documented in the freshwater
regions where P.v. mellonae was identified/described/classified.
The image selected would be used initially on our Places page:
http://www.SealWatch.org/places.html with credit and info as presented
for other images.
We are preparing for an eventual expansion of our Species page, and
hope to provide information about each of the P.v. subspecies with at
least one photo of each. Suitable P.v. mellonae images would enable us
to complete that project.
