AUSTRALIAN SEA LION
The Australian sea lion is an endangered species with active conservation efforts underway in Seal Bay. This playful pup was blissfully frolicking in the sand but became quite intrigued as I approached. Our gazes locked momentarily before the distractions of surf and sun proved too strong for this young Aussie.
