SWIM WITH THE SEALS

SWIM WITH THE SEALS IN THE JERVIS BAY MARINE PARK

The Australian fur seal is the fourth-rarest seal species in the world. Hunted to near extinction last century, recovery of numbers has been slow, and this species is now wholly protected. These seals are easily recognizable by their thick coats, pointed faces and long whiskers, and their powerful front flippers upon which they can stand. Their hind fins are mainly used for steering when in water, although they can also be turned around and used to walk on land. Females are a variety of colors from soft tan to gray to brown. Underneath the female’s neck, the color is a pale almost yellowish, and her fur at the front is normally brown. These seals have a call which sounds something like a cow mooing (the adults), or a bleating lamb (pups).
