Temporary fence for seal safety

Monday 12 February 2018

A temporary fence has been erected around the fish cleaning table at Narooma town wharf in an attempt to keep a visiting seal at bay.

The fur seal has some minor injuries and has been sunning itself on the nearby footpath in recent weeks.

To keep the seal and passers-by safe, Eurobodalla Council staff installed temporary construction fencing on Friday afternoon in collaboration with the National Parks and Wildlife Service.

The footpath remains open to pedestrians.

Council says the fence is temporary and will stay in place until National Parks says it can be taken down.

Council is reminding residents to follow National Parks’ advice not to feed or touch the seals.
