We have over 31 species of marine mammals that call the Pacific North West home. Do you think you know the difference between a seal and a sea lion? What key characteristics would you look for to tell them apart? This suborder, which includes Seals Family: Phocids , Sea Lions Family: Otariids and Walruses Family: Odobenidae , have the widest distribution of any other suborder and inhabit all the oceans. Pinnipeds main sources of food are fish and squid, however some will eat mollusks, crustaceans and much larger prey.
Photo from National Geographic So how can you tell them apart? There are a couple of noticeable differences between Seals and Sea Lions. When I am differentiating between the two, I focus on two characteristics: their flippers and their ears.

The forelimbs of sea lions are longer and more developed than those of seals. They use them to move through the water and to prop themselves up and move quickly on land. Another noticeable characteristic is that their hind flippers can rotate forward. In contrast, a seal uses its hind flippers when propelling through the water, cannot prop themselves up, are awkward when moving on land, and cannot rotate their hind flippers forward. Another way to differentiate between the two would be by observing their ears. This is not something you would see unless you were standing over a dead individual or you had binoculars.
Never go up to a seal or sea lion to see if it has ear flaps or not, I promise you, it will not end well. Below you can see some other characteristic differences between the two species:. Now that you have all the information do you think you can tell them apart? Who am I? Who are we? I am going to start off easy, just so that you can focus on noticing the differences.

Thank you for helping to inspire conservation of the Salish Sea and monitor the health of our local ocean. On the first Saturday of every month, I get to hang out on the beach with three of Port Townsend's finest birders.

I arrived to my first day of service on the morning of October 1 completely unaware that I would spend my evening training on PSSS protocol until PM, let alone leading my first survey two days later. This month, we were graced with the presence of a full rainbow for the entire survey. It was truly remarkable! We counted 39 individuals representing 8 species, and one double rainbow.

Since the rainbow lasted for over an hour, I was gifted with the opportunity to change my perspective numerous times. As a marine ecologist whose primary research interests are underwater, I spend a lot of time looking down and thinking about what lies below.
This rainbow was a stark symbol of what glory there is to see if I remember to look up. Moreover, I now recognize the diversity of lenses — and hence, perspectives — I use at PTMSC to view and learn from the Salish Sea: my own eyes and glasses , binoculars, spotting scopes, microscopes, cameras digital and underwater!
To me, the processes of investigating changing our perspectives and communicating sharing our perceptions are what science and education are all about; I serve to embody and inspire these processes.

Featherfoot, Space Marine
Over the period of two short months, AmeriCorps and PTMSC have connected me to a phenomenal group of volunteers, visitors, students, colleagues, and scientists. It is quite fitting that my first taste of citizen science was ornithological in nature. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is renowned for pioneering the bridges or, keeping in theme: connections between citizen science and ecology.
Further, seabirds are an important ecological connection between our ocean, land, and sky. Citizen science is not as prevalent in marine science as it is in other systems. I am thankful for the opportunity to serve at an organization that is at the forefront of marine citizen science, and studies such a wide array of subjects, particularly those that challenge me to think critically and broaden my interests.
I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, a talented birder. I don't even think I qualify as an "okay" birder. I have astigmatism, so trying not to trip over what is right in front of me is enough of a daily chore — one that is not eased with a pair of binoculars. However, like anything else, careful practice brings improvement.
Featherfoot, Space Marine
Our study site is the open water of the Straits of Juan de Fuca just north of Pt. Thus, we do not count birds in trees, which relieves some obstructive difficulties and eliminates the potential for 'leafbirds' altogether , but does not come without other challenges. The birds are often highly active and can fly away at any moment without notice. Seabirds can also disappear underwater to dive and forage fish. On windy days, high wave action can obscure our direct line of sight to the birds.

Thank you to Ron, Bill, and Bruce for sharing your birding knowledge and braving gnarly winds with me every month. And, thank you to all of our citizen scientists for your continued devotion to, and incredible patience with, your respective projects. You strengthen the institution of science more than you will ever know.
