Where Baby Seals Roam Wild

Where Baby Seals Roam Wild

One of the most amazing shots of baby seals in the wild…

The Ohau Waterfall Kaikoura in New Zealand is an enchanting place where you can enjoy spectacular scenery and baby seals swimming around having fun.

Every year seal pups are born on the coast around Kaikoura, the coastal outcrops, nooks and crannies, provides an excellent breeding habitat and protection for young pups from storms that hit the coast.

The pups are born in November, and travel up the stream from April onwards. They remain at the pool for several days and then return to the coast to feed from their mother’s milk. The mothers head out to sea on foraging trips, for periods of one to 20 days at sea, then return to the shore to feed their pups.
