The New Zealand Fur Seals are found around the coast of the South Island and Stewart Island. They can also be found in the North Island and south of Australia, and on the sub Antartic Islands. NZ Fur Seals have two very thick dark brown coats. Their diet consists of fish, squid and octopus. Exploitation by humans of the NZ Fur Seals has ended and this beautiful mammal is now fully protected, hopefully for all time.
