I have seen pretty extensive bleeding from a nail in my foot, a slice to my hand etc.  You can have your opinion, but given what I have seen her up to in the marina I would place way more weight on a

It is interesting that the researcher, LeopardSeals.org co-founder Dr Krista Hupman, thinks that the problem of dinghies being destroyed is caused by boaties: "It is the responsibility of boat ow

What berth were you on when she came for that munch, Mr D Purple?

I get updates from the monitoring team and let them know of bits I see and hear. I told them about a couple of sightings and fender dinners she'd had. So if anyone has a incident can they please note what berth, or close as, where that is please and I'll let the team know. More detail gives them more to track and predict...not to mention the big seal in the room, pick up on any signs of behavioural changes, especially ones that may lead to her biting more than fenders, dingys and fish.

Her movements update is saying she's back in AKL and is likely to be here i.e. in the Waitamata, for the rest of the year, based on patterns they are seeing develop.

The latest from the team about her local movements is this  - Based on the reports we have been getting she has been spending a lot of time in the upper harbour with the odd sighting at Westhaven. She has also been visiting a few people out on the water, but no indication of dangerous behaviour, more curiosity.

The team watching the leopards NZ wide and our Westhaven lump of blubber would like everyone to use the linked form when they want to report a Seal munching i.e if Miss Blubber eat ya dingy go to this link, fill it out and then Giverny can build a better database of the damage she is causing. Not sure why they want that but I'm guessing it;s so there is a picture built of just what Blubber is doing and the cost.

I've been cheeky and asked if they have any dollar value they can tell me. I'll let you know what comes back, if anything does. There maybe some sort of data protection, who knows these days.

 

No need for you Mr D Purple, I've done it for you and even added the photo ;)

The team studying these Leopard seals I chat with has asked if I can help spread the word about them so they can get all the inputs they can about Leopard Seals including the dingy muncher. Also one of the lead ladies, Giverny, is finishing up a Thesis on the buggers so the more she has the better for her and eventually us and the blubbers.

So if you have seen any Leopard Seal, not only the Westhaven dingy destroyer, doing anything, anywhere at any time can you please go here and let them know what you can. It's a on line form to report things. I think if you make one of specific interest the team, maybe Giverny, will contact you for more detail, they are nice people, it is not a inquisition far from it.

IF YOU HAVE A SPOT, PLACE, BUNCH OR PEOPLE YOU THINK MAY HELP OR A CLUB NOTICE BOARD OR A POST THAT THE BELOW POSTER CAN GO ON, PLEASE DO IT.

THE WIDER THE REACH THE WIDER AND BETTER THE RESPONSES LEADING TO BETTER UNDERSTANDINGS......and maybe a discovery that may stop the bitch eating our boats and marina.

 

This message brought to you by someone who is real keen to use information over lead travelling at considerable pace in an effort to find peace with one particular stinking lump of blubber.
