Sarah is our founder member of The Seal Project, key marine medic and our senior survey member.  Her identification work of South Devon seals is important to the local group and equally as part of a Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust's seal identification database. Her stunning photos of the seals are found in the gallery.


Often found early mornings, around the coast, carrying out survey work and the ongoing litter battle. Sarah's work also liaises with the other seal related groups and The Seal Project is proud to be part of The Seal Alliance, which includes country wide seal groups, along with Seal Rescue Ireland. 


As a seal identifier for Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust she has increased the picture of seal activity in the South West, and can easily recognise many returning seals to the area by their fur patterns.

Sarah volunteers all of her free time and encourages others to get stuck in and help their coastline. 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.
