A pair of Hooker's sea lions play on the beach at Sandfly Bay, near Dunedin, New Zealand, Friday, Sept. 23, 2011. Also known as the New Zealand sea lion, it has had a protected species status since the 1890s, and is considered one of the rarest species of sea lion in the world and arguably the most threatened because of their restricted breeding range.
