Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust is an evidence based conservation charity supporting a large network of active citizen scientists who routinely survey seals on their local patch to learn more about grey seals, a globally rare marine mammal for which the UK has a special legal responsibility to protect (JNCC).
Each seal has a unique fur pattern enabling it to be identified throughout its life. Research has shown Looe is an important site for seals on linked seal motorways across the Celtic Sea.
Sue Sayer of the Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust will escort seal spotting trips and has a stall. They will be educating visitors on how to reduce our impact on seals.
