More about Seals

Kangaroo Island is renown for it’s seals. The link here can explain the various types of seals that live around Australia.  I’ve read it often but I still get confused.

Nevertheless, the photograph below is a mother and pup which I  saw at Seal Bay. They were resting nearby the extensive boardwalks.

Seal Bay is a wonderful place to visit. The education centre is very good and there are guided tours to the beach on a regular basis. This ensures people are supervised when checking out the seals. I was quietly impressed with the South Australian National Park authority.

This is not a skeleton of a seal but a Humpbacked Whale.  Human visitors are not allowed to leave the boardwalks and explore the beach or dunes,  but the seals can and hence the tracks around the skeleton were made by the seals.
