Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Wildlife Conservation Initiatives: The model could be utilized by conservation organizations to monitor elephant seal populations, identify the number and class of seals present in different climates, and track their migration patterns. This can help to inform on-going conservation strategies, measure the health of the population, and assess the effect of environmental changes.

  2. Animal Behavior Studies: Researchers studying the behavior and life cycle of elephant seals could use this model to quantify and categorize behaviors based on the class of seal, for example understanding differences in movement patterns or social habits between pups, cows, bulls, and others.

  3. Marine Park Management: In marine parks or protected regions, the model can assist in monitoring elephant seal colonies. By identifying each type of e-seals (pups, cows, bulls), park rangers or wildlife management teams can assess the overall health and dynamics of the population.

  4. Media Production for Documentaries: Producers of wildlife documentaries could use the model to aid in identifying specific classes of elephant seals during post-production, saving countless hours that would be spent trawling through footage to find specific instances or interactions.

  5. Ecotourism Planning: Eco-tour companies who facilitate guided tours focusing on wildlife spotting could employ the model to identify peak times and locations for viewing each class of elephant seals, improving tour planning and visitor experience.
