Abstract

A vagrant adult male Subantarctic fur seal Arctocephalus tropicalis was seen and photographed on the beach in Mayumba National Park in the Gabonese Republic. This is the northern most sighting on record for the species. The likely source of the vagrant is the population at Gough Island, South Atlantic.
