This month, we be were busy raising the alarm about the huge rise in dead seals washing up and being reported across Ireland’s coastlines.n 2020 SRI recorded a total of 202 dead seal reports, nearly DOUBLE that of 2019! And the trend continues: so far 2021 is starting off strong, with double the numbers reported from this time in 2020
If you've read the paper or listened to East Coast FM lately, you may have heard our Executive Director, Melanie Croce, talking about Seal Rescue Ireland's collaborative partnership with Wicklow Co. Council to protect Brides Head Beach, a crucial Grey seal haul-out site, during pupping and moulting season (August - April).
With SRI’s BRAND NEW Virtual Education Programme, you’ll get the chance to learn (safely from home!) all about Ireland’s native seals, and what we can all do to protect them and marine biodiversity. Join us virtually for a tour of our seal hospital in Courtown, Co Wexford, and an engaging look at how we give sick, injured and orphaned seals another chance at life in the wild.
