Common Seals in the Wadden Sea in 2002
Common seals in the Wadden Sea areas of the Netherlands, Lower Saxony, Schleswig-Holstein and Denmark are monitored through trilaterally coordinated aerial surveys. The flights are scheduled during the seal whelping and moulting seasons (i.e. June/early July and August, respectively), when the highest numbers of hauling out seals can be registered.
