Fundraising
Charities across the UK are struggling due to Covid. As a project we are trying to be as frugal as possible and not ask our members for money. We have decided not to run active fundraising campaigns whilst everyone struggles a little financially at the moment. Previous fundraising has been through:
Individual sponsorship for endurance such as 365 Sea Swim Challenge, We are one of the two 
   legacy fund Charities they and the swimmers are supporting.

- Donations from local groups and small ventures
- Business funding
- Donations from talks and presentations, including Fishcombe Cove Cafe, Rotary of Brixham,
  Reach Outdoors and many others
- Co op Local Community Fund - now on our second year
- Tesco Groundworks

If you have an idea let us know and we are grateful for all support.

Assist with seal identification
Keep your eyes open for course sessions that show you how to identify seals. We can show you the differences between common and grey seals, males & females. We use fur patterns to establish recognisable seals and send the information to a network database.

Be able to explain camouflage
Why do our seals camouflage? Have a go yourself. We can use camouflage in our wildlife photography so that we don't scare creatures. Take a look at our hidden animals and send us
photos of your own disguises.
