Cruise to Campbell Island (Sub-Antarctic island of New Zealand)
1-2 December 2007
Campbell island is the New Zealand's southernmost subantarctic territory and has a unique ecosystem, hosting more species than any other subantarctic island, except Crozet. There are six species of Albatross, the rare Hookerii sea lion, yellow eyed penguins and an unique flora.
A view on Campbell Island and onto the smaller satellite islands.
The group lands at Perseverance Harbor. Soon, an Hookerii sea lion comes to investigate.
I choose a short hike. The landscape all around is very picturesque.
