Gorey Guardian: Concern as number of dead seals washing ashore doubles

Over the winter months, Seal Rescue Ireland volunteers have been inundated with reports of dead seals washing up on beaches, particularly in Counties Wexford, Waterford and Cork.

From November 1, 2020, to February 19, Seal Rescue Ireland have received reports of 40 dead seals in Co Wexford alone.

Melanie Croce from the group said that the cause of death for these seals has yet to be determined, but it is a certainly cause for concern.
