Today’s photo of the week is of a New Zealand fur seal pup at Ohau Point.
During the winter months a group of young playful seal pups can often be seen swimming in the waterfall pool along Ohau Stream.
DOC is currently looking for volunteers to help manage visitors to the Ohau Point waterfall and Point Keen near Kaikoura.
Volunteers will spend time talking to visitors, answering questions about the seals and help people stay safe around them.
