A New Zealand Fur Seal (Arctocephalus fosteri) lazes on the rocks in Kaikoura. These seals were widely hunted from shortly after the European discovery of New Zealand until the late 19th Century. The population of the New Zealand seal fell to levels under 10% of the original numbers. In New Zealand the Fur Seal is now protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act (1978).
