Spot sealife.

Explore your nature

  • Count the number of seagulls and ocean birds you can see.
  • Find a little fish or crab in a rockpool.
  • Take a photo of a fur seal – Seals like their space so keep at least 20 m away.
  • Wave at a whale travelling along New Zealand’s coast.

Get creative

  • Capture a photo of sealife or write a poem / story inspired by sealife
