for wildlife & society

The Ocean Ecology Lab

We study animal movement, foraging ecology, health, and population dynamics to support the science-based management of threatened, protected, and harvested species. We use cutting-edge technology, quantitative tools, and good old-fashioned time on (and in) the water to identify opportunities for conservation and management action. We work directly with stakeholders, communities, and managers to ensure that our research has direct applications to the needs of society and its sustainable use of the natural world.
