Burning Issue: Flame Retardants in Harbor Seals
Susan D. Shaw executive director, MERI
Dr. Shaw discusses her investigation of the effects of toxic pollutants in harbor seals in the northwestern Atlantic.

Since 2004, the population has experienced recurring epizootics, and it can be speculated that chemical stress, in concert with other factors, may be contributing to their deaths.
