In May, this beautiful creature was spotted at Draadbaai by Marianne Alexander, who has a house nearby. She noticed that it had been tagged and sent these pictures to Deon Kotze at the Department of Environmental Affairs in the hope that she might find out more about the visitor.


He responded as follows: “It is a Southern Elephant seal and originated in the southern oceans, where they breed on islands such as Marion Island, Gough Island and South Georgia. I do not have the tagging information at hand but we tagged it about a year ago, when it also visited our shores. This is therefore a very valuable re-sighting.”
