These three seals were part of a large colony located on the Friars, which is a group of islands comprising four dolerite rock outcrops, at the southern entrance to the D’Entrecasteaux Channel in Tasmania.
They are the largest of all the Fur Seals and were hunted almost to the brink of extinction in the 19th century. Now that this species is wholly protected, their population size is increasing.
