SealWatch.org is looking for images of P. vitulina ssp. stejnegeri
(Insular seal) haul-out or nursery areas for its Places page and expansion
of its Species listings:
http://www.SealWatch.org/places.html

We currently have examples of ssp. richardii (Pacific), mellonae (Ungava),
concolor (Western Atlantic), and vitulina (Eastern Atlantic), but have
neither images nor location information for the Western Pacific variety of
the Harbor/Common seal.

Any resources for information about the current status of the Insular
seal, and laws/agencies which monitor and protect it within its range are
welcome.
