#3 Steller sea lion

Eumetopias jubatus
IUCN Redlist: Endangered 
Location: Flat Rocks, West Coast Trail, Vancouver Island, Canada
Time: 1422 PST, March 21 2011

Both Steller sea lions and Californian sea lions live in this area, and both may have been present in this photo. Stellers, however, were positively identified by their vocalisations, and so are the species that will be counted.

This colony is a few minutes walk north of the Pachena Point Lighthouse on the West Coast Trail.
