Stereo recording of Hooker's Sea Lions (Phocarctos hookeri) playing in a cove of Snares Island.

One Sea Lion is swimming in the front, a second one is roaring in a remote sea cave.
Silver Gulls and Sub-Antarctic terns are flying around. Not far away, there is a small but noisy Snare’s penguins colony.

Snares islands is on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1998

Rode NT4 + home brewed preamp + DAT AIWA HD-S1 recorder
