Welcome back Rebecca!

We welcome Rebecca back to Bielefeld after a very successful field season on Bird Island, South Georgia! She traveled down in November 2018 and spent five months tracking the physical and physiological development of mother-pup fur seal pairs from birth to weaning. We are all looking forward to working with and hearing about the great data this season has produced!

Thanks to Greg Charrier

A big thanks to Greg Charrier, who travelled all the way from Brest to give a very nice talk in the Behaviour and Evolution seminar series. We had a great time eating yummy German food and discussing life, the universe, and marine population genetics!
