Students Perform Sea Lion Necropsy

Jr. and Sr. Marine Biology Students at Mt. Edgecumbe had the opportunity this week to perform a necropsy on a sea lion that was found floating near Thomsen Harbor. The National Marine Fisheries Services allowed the students to take samples from the animal, for both education and possibly to discover the cause of death.
