is the online portfolio of wildlife biologist and photographer Dr John Gibbens.

While conducting remote-area field trips, John gets access to wilderness that remains off-limits to most photographers. Although a website specialising in fur seals may seem a little obscure, it's a niche that hasn't been well documented before. And the pups are undeniably cute. There are photos of other wildlife too.

Start by having a look at the photo stories and image galleries.
