Which Sea Lion

The Trust and DOC are very interested in identifying individual sea lions from their tag numbers (where fitted) and to help you identify individuals we have the following table.

This list  is mainly of the sea lions who were born on the mainland so you may not find all the tag numbers you have seen here. Some tagged sea lions have traveled here from the Subantartic Islands (like Mum did all those years ago) and we only have information about local animals.

Photographs are a great way to remember individual numbers but please remember to keep at least 10 metres away while taking them.
