Tansy Visits Sea Lions
Tansy was fascinated by the Stellers sea lions that she saw from the schooner Passing Cloud several times on her recent voyages around Gwaii Haanas in Haida Gwaii.
These ones were seen on Garcin Rocks, a rookery off the east side of Benjamin Point, at the south end of Moresby Island (this link goes to a map, which you can zoom out on to see where it is).
There were quite a few pups on the rocks, and the alpha males were defending their harems from wannabee alphas. There seems to be a constant commotion at this rookery.
Tansy wanted the photographer to make a video so that everyone could hear how much noise they make.
She is very pleased that video cannot convey smell, because she has never smelled anything worse, even from upwind.
Here is the video, with no smell:
