The Australian sea lion (Neophoca cinerea) was added to the threatened species list in 2005. The species is ranked as vulnerable due to concerns over its lack of recovery from the commercial sealing era. Female sea lions always return to their own birth site to breed, a factor which contributes to the slow recovery of small colonies from population decline. Pleasingly, a new breeding colony for the sea lion was recently discovered at Draper Island int he Recherche Archipelago.
