When you are in the Australian outback, you may not see a seal for years at a time.
The baby owl, a rare bird found nowhere else in the world, is among the species that can’t be seen for years.
It’s in danger of extinction because of habitat destruction, over-hunting and human-induced climate change.
We’ve seen baby owls disappear from the mainland, including in New South Wales.
But we are still in a position to see one in Australia, as the baby seal is in danger from over-grazing and habitat loss.
A baby seal has no natural predators, and its only diet consists of seal prawns, seal meat and a few scraps of seaweed.
“It’s basically a food desert,” Dr Michael Jones, a wildlife biologist with the Australian Conservation Foundation, told news.com, “and the seals that live there are getting smaller and smaller.”
But in the meantime, the baby owl is one of Australia’s rarest bird species, with only a few hundred left in the wild.
Its habitat is in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, and the seal population is growing at a rate that has experts worried.
Australia’s largest seal is a baby white-faced owl.
It is only 1.3 metres tall, but is estimated to weigh around 20 kilograms.
The baby seal can be found in Australia’s remote and temperate waters.
Some scientists believe that the baby owl is already extinct in Australia because of climate change, overpopulation and human activity.
And that could change.
Climate change, and changing weather patterns, mean the baby seals population could shrink significantly, according to the ABC.
In the next 20 years, scientists say, the population of baby seals could decline by up to 80 percent, and it is expected to become extinct in the southern hemisphere within 50 years.
“If we’re looking at the Antarctic at this time, we’re actually in a very strong position to potentially save this population,” Dr Jones said.
“Because the Antarctic is already experiencing a lot of habitat loss, we’ve already got a number of seals in that area.”

A baby white face, baby seal and the endangered baby owl are among the many species Australia’s wildlife is facing.
“The Australian Antarctic Division has been working closely with the scientific community for a number and years now, to protect these species from overhunting, habitat loss and climate change,” the Department of Conservation said in a statement.
While there’s no official word on when baby owlets will be seen again, the department is urging people to remain vigilant.
“[People] need to do their best to watch out for them,” Dr Smith said.
