In this episode, I interview NOAA scientist and Leopard Seal researcher, Dr. Doug Krause. He specializes in predator/prey interactions of Antarctic species, in particular Leopard Seals and Antarctic Fur Seals. During the interview, he explains how new innovative techniques like attaching “critter cams”, have opened up the once private world of the Antarctic’s most elusive predator. Other topics include traveling to Antartica, penguins, and recent findings about Leopard Seal ecology.
