Dunedin's New Zealand sea lion pups have arrived in record numbers.
Department of Conservation staff, along with the New Zealand Sea Lion Trust and Te Runanga o Otakou, tagged 20 pups this summer from St Kilda to Warrington.
DOC biodiversity ranger Jim Fyfe said it was the most successful breeding season for the threatened species since it returned to Dunedin shores about 30 years ago.
