fate of the New Zealand fur seal has been much the same as other seal species
in the area. Hunted to near extinction when Europeans arrived, it has now

They love to soak up the warming rays late in the afternoon, with this arched
back pose typical of the big male bulls.
This large male was photographed at Admirals Arch on Kangaroo Island.
