Based in Brixham, the Seal project work across the SouthWest to improve the coastline, encourage others to do so and support our local seal population.
First aid trainer
Duncan has been involved with coastal conservation for years, but has worked tirelessly since January 2019, to build a structure that will care for the Torbay coast line and it's seals for years to come. An experienced trainer and presenter, Duncan is always very willing to come and give talks to help raise awareness of the great work that is happening locally for the seals.
Using photos and video to raise awareness for our coasts, his artistic eye can be seen in films, photos and within his drawings, so head to our face book page and take a look! His underwater video work will soon be seen at the English Riviera Film Festival.

The second face in our dynamic duo is that of the gorgeous Sarah. Her stunning photos of the seals are also in the gallery. Often found early mornings, at the beach, carrying out survey work and the ongoing litter battle. Sarah's work also liaises with the Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust, building a picture of seal activity in the South West.
Sarah and Duncan both volunteer all of their time and encourage others to get stuck in and help their coastline. Like Duncan she is also available for talks about their work and the seals.
The survey team depend on Lee's ability to care for and skipper the wildlife survey boat. It is a careful job to manage a boat so that it is close and still enough for team cameras to observe and survey the local seal population. He is incredibly careful to ensure that distance is maintained so that our work can continue without any disruption to the marine life.
