Frolic with fur seals

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

These islands were once home to more than 50,000 fur seals, but they were slaughtered—largely to make coverings for top hats for English gentry—in just two years from 1807. Numbers have since recovered to around 20,000, which nonetheless contest every inch of territory on the islands
