There are 6 living species of sea lion, and 1 extinct. As the interest in these species grows and the links become unwieldy i will split out the separate species, but for the time being I will just have one page for them all – help it to be necessary to split them as soon as possible.
As we gain contacts each picture above will become a link to a page for the specific species.
Sea lions can be specifically searched out, but it is also possible to have a surprise encounter with one.
One of my most memorable encounters with any wildlife, is an encounter with a New Zealand sealion. We had simply gone for a walk on the beach, and at some point, we saw the sea lion coming out of the sea. This huge male slowly made its way towards us, and when about 10m away it lay down in the sand, threw sand all over itself and went to sleep.
