Famous Seal Biologists Come To The Ranch

We had a short visit from the seal biologists today. They admired our camp (and our penguins, of course, when we finally get them). Both Randy and Terrie have spent many seasons down in McMurdo studying the Weddell seals. Randy was part of a group that studied the Wedddell over winter at White Island many years ago. Both Randy and Terrie have landmarks in the Antarctic named after them for their contributions to science down here. Ian and Tray are their graduate students.
