dc:abstract Introduction Southern elephant seals, Mirounga leonina, are distributed mostly in subantarctic environments [8]. One colony, Península Valdés (PV), in coastal Patagonia (Argentina), is exceptional. The number of seals on the Patagonian coast has been increasing for decades. This unique trend in the species is supported by detailed censuses of the PV colony conducted annually during the last 25 years [9]. Despite the positive trend in PV seals, the precedent of several populations of southern elephant seals declining for decades [6, 12] suggests that timely conservation action may benefit from long-term time series in demographic data. Indeed, the main purpose of achieving long-term data on population numbers, particularly pup production, at PV was to detect eventual declines. We applied theoretical demographic and environmental parameters to analyze trend scenarios for PV and discuss quantitative results relative to adopting simple precautionary decisions in the absence of data. The unique characteristic of PV as the only growing colony for a widely distributed species allows comparisons with shrinking populations that may help determine which life history stages are most relevant in explaining present trends.
