Drop-In to MLML Open House: Track a “Sea Lion” Through the Halls

"Track Me!" reads the label on Tamale's collar (photo: E. Loury)

If something small, furry and tagged bumps into your leg during Open House, don’t worry – it’s probably just a student’s pet posing as a marine mammal!  These visitors below have successfully tracked down Tamale the would-be sea lion by following the beeping noises transmitted from Tamale’s tag to their receiver antenna.   Scientists in the Vertebrate Ecology Lab use this method to relocate their tagged animals in the field.  Come to our Open House to give it a try for yourself!

MLML Open House is Saturday, April 30 & Sunday, May 1.
