Photo of the week: Ohau Point seal pup

Department of Conservation —  01/04/2015

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.

    What a great experience – wish I lived over in Kaikoura to volunteer! Hope you get a good response as it is a great opportunity to do something good for the wildlife and our environment. I recommend this spot to all our guests heading that way.
