A colony of northern fur seals has been found breeding on an island off California, and everyone hopes that this will not lead to its disappearance.

Photoperiod and reproduction in captive female Northern fur seals
The reproductive cycles of captive female Northern fur seals (Callorhinus ursinus) were unaffected over two consecutive years by a photoperiod that differed substantially from that of the natural
Discovery of Northern Fur Seals ( Callorhinus ursinus ) Breeding on Bogoslof Island Southeastern Bering Sea
A small group of northern fur seals ( Callorhinus ursinus ) including one male with two females, each with a small pup, and two lone males were discovered on Bogoslof Island, Alaska in the Bering Sea

Fur seal skeletal remains have been found in many archaeological sites on the central Northwest Coast. Although these sites lie adjacent to the annual spring migration route of Northern fur seals (
Foraging characteristics of female northern fur seals (Callorhinus ursinus) and California sea lions (Zalophus californianus)
Although both species evidently foraged at similar distances from the island, foraging trips of fur seals were over twice as long as those of sea lions .
Growth of the Northern Fur Seal Colony on Bogoslof Island, Alaska
Northern fur seal, Callorhinus ursinus , pups were first observed on Bogoslof Island, southeast Bering Sea, in 1980. By 1988 the population had grown at a rate of 57%/yr to over 400 individuals,
Elephant seals on the Farallones: population structure of an incipient breeding colony.
The colonization of Southeast Farallon Island, California, by northern elephant seals, Mirounga angustirostris , began in 1959 with the appearance of a single animal. By 1971, over 100 juveniles were
Fur seal investigations, 1992
The 1992 studies on male entanglement confirm earlier estimates that the annual survival of seals entangled in small debris is about one-half that of nonentangled seals and indicate that while the health of preweaned pups was compromised during the 1991-1992 El Nino, it was not as detrimental as previous warm water events.
Clustering of colonies in an expanding population of New Zealand fur seals (Arctocephalus forsteri)
Increasing numbers of fur seals on Otago Peninsula have resulted in the rapid proliferation of colonies, and their clustering is indicative of a ‘spill-over’ effect where young individuals choose to breed near to established breeders.
The shifting baseline of northern fur seal ecology in the northeast Pacific Ocean
Isotopic results suggest that prehistoric NFS fed offshore across their entire range, that California populations were distinct from populations to the north, and that populations breeding at temperate latitudes in the past used a different reproductive strategy than modern populations.
