Kangaroo Island kids, seals and sealions

On a recent trip to Kangaroo Island off the coast of South Australia we found many wonderful wildlife opportunities for visitors, including Seal Bay mid way along the islands southern coastline.

One of those special was where visitors have the chance to take a tour of the wild beaches where the endangered Australian sea lion colony is.

"The only place in the world where visitors are able to enter a wild colony of approximately 1000 Australian Sea Lions - one of the rarest species in the world."

Fees are charged for tours however it goes back into research and protection of the animals.

AUSMEPA loves kids and it was pure delight to see that students are highly engaged when it comes to pinnipeds (seals and sea lions).

Here is some of the classy student artwork displayed at the visitors centre.

Don't forget that students and teachers can get some terrific school curriculum materials on the AUSMEPA website. Marine resources and images are copyright free for educational purposes.
