Bay -- The endangered Australian Sea Lion, hunted
nearly to extinction, is protected on this idyllic beach south-central of
Numbering no more than 3000 and
scattered throughout the Australian coast, these creatures typically rest
for much of their day to muster the strength of their long, deep dives for
food. Visitors are careful not to approach them any closer than 10 meters,
always staying in a group led by a park ranger.
