Ile des Phoques

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ile des Phoques (also called Isle du Phoques) is a rugged granite island, with an area of 8 ha, part of the Schouten Island Group, lying close to the eastern coast of Tasmania, Australia near the Freycinet Peninsula.

Seal hunting took place here from at least 1805.[1] Captain James Kelly is recorded sealing here during his 1816 circumnavigation of Tasmania.[2]

It is a nature reserve.[3]

Fauna

Recorded breeding seabird species are little penguin, short-tailed shearwater, fairy prion and common diving-petrel. White-bellied sea-eagles have nested on the island. Australian fur seals haul-out there and there is historical evidence that it was once a major breeding colony.[3]
