1994); oiled fur seals in Uruguay may have also died from hypothermia. In polar waters, where biodegradation and volatilization are diminished, oil will persist and concentrate along ice edges, in leads, and between ice floes – areas where pinnipeds are most likely to be exposed. Thick, viscous oil can mat hair, prevent limbs from moving freely, and cause death from drowning or exhaustion (Geraci and St Aubin 1990). Pinnipeds and cetaceans are generally unlikely to ingest significant amounts of oil.
