In this simulation, learners model two elephant seal populations and how they change over time. Learners start with cards representing a variety of seals. Each generation, some seals survive to reproduce, passing on their traits to new seals. The amount of variation in the protected seal population stays high, while the unprotected population becomes more limited by selective pressure. In the related activity, learners can graph their data about the seal populations to show how they change over time.
