First seal pup of 2019

Spotted on the beach today, coming down off the dunes: the first seal pup of the season.

Please watch your dogs on the beach, and drivers beware. Remember, the law says you must stay at least 20 metres away and it’s an offence to disturb, harass, harm, injure or kill a seal. See Seal safety at Waikawa Beach.
