Recent increases in survival of western Steller sea lions in Alaska and implications for recovery
Endangered Species Research
Survival rates of endangered western stock Steller sea lions Eumetopias jubatus east of Samalga Pass (~170°W) have rebounded to nearly the same levels estimated for the 1970s prior to their decline in abundance. We estimated survival of sea lions hot-branded as pups (N = 1449) in 2000−2005 using Cormack-Jolly-Seber mark-recapture models and sighting data collected through 2011. Survivorship to Age 7 yr was greater for females (range: 0.352−0.386) than males (0.228−0.275), but was similar fordoi:10.3354/esr00634 fatcat:l5o2gosyrncsfjcly2uwb5nkqu
