<p class="MsoNormal"><br></p><p class="MsoNormal">South Australia’s marine areas boast iconic species such as
the southern right whale, bottlenose dolphin, leafy sea dragon, great white shark,
Australian pelican, little penguin, Australian sea lion, New Zealand fur seal
and giant cuttlefish. Southern right whales gather in the Encounter and Far West Coast
Marine Parks, areas that are recognised as being internationally-significant
breeding sites. These areas provide for undisturbed calving for southern right
whales, as well as protection of Australian sea-lion feeding grounds. New Zealand fur seals and Australian sea lions are only now
starting to recover after the species was nearly wiped out by commercial
sealing in the 19<sup>th</sup> century. Sea lions and fur seals make extensive
use of our Marine Parks, and are seen on many South Australian beaches, with
breeding colonies on Kangaroo Island and other off-shore islands.</p><p class="MsoNormal"></p><p class="MsoNormal">
