BOZEMAN - A team of ecologists from Montana State University are currently in Antarctica studying seals.
Despite being thousands of miles and many time zones away the researchers joined us live on Montana this Morning via Facetime.
The guys were nice enough to stay up late. At a little before 6 a.m. our time it was nearly 1 a.m. on Friday in Antarctica, but the sun was still up.
Ecologist Jay Rotella said it was about zero degrees there.
"We're studying Weddell seals. It's a native species down here and we keep track of the population and the good news is the population is doing fantastic right now," he said.
