Hi Liam, I'm going to pass on confirming this one, as they are too hard to pick from NZ fur seals. Googling "fur seals, Green Cape" got me references to both species being there, although Aust fur seal ones seemed a bit more authoritative. NSW Scientific Committee mentions Green Cape as a haul out site for Aust fur seal, but I guess that doesn't preclude the NZ subspecies being there too.
