Scout for Seals this Summer.

Why not help marine mammal ecologist Clowie Russell to track the movements of seals in Dublin Bay this summer. Dublin Bay has two species of seal, common or harbour seals, and grey seals. Clowie is using photo sightings to identify and track the seal population in Dublin Bay. Did you know that grey seals have a unique fur pattern on their neck that stays with them throughout their life? So, photo ID will help provide population estimation, site fidelity and movements between sites in Dublin Bay, and long term monitoring will provide new insights into their status and distribution.
