The relationship between seals and humans extends back thousands of years on Cape Cod and throughout the Gulf of Maine. Despite this, our understanding of the natural history, ecology, and role that seals play in our complex ecosystems is still growing and at the center of many fields of research: from foraging ecology to human dimension research and bio-sensor engineering. Learn our current understandings, common misperceptions, and what more we need to know.
