Baby Fur Seals and Other Animals

Fur Seal by Lucie Simpson

While I’m off travelling the world, my little sister’s having her own adventure in the South Island. She’s studying wildlife conservation, which, for a girl who’s been obsessed with animals since infancy, is a dream come true. Here are some of the photographs she’s taken of the animals she’s encountered. These first few are New Zealand fur seal pups. Credit, obviously, to Lucie Simpson.

Wait… is this one a takahe or a pukeko? (Lucie will not be impressed I had to ask.)

Okay, one last one…

Oh, South Island, stop being so gorgeous.
