Summary

In addition to updating the estimation of demographic parameters for New Zealand sea lions breeding on the Auckland Islands using data collected up to the 2009/10 field season, this report also describes models that allow the number of resights per season to follow a zero-inflated binomial distribution. Models using logit-linear relationships with age for the demographic parameters were also fitted to the data.
