Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust - 2018 in review

From engaging with nearly 7,000 people, to expanding its ranger team and winning awards at the Cornwall Volunteers and Cornwall Sustainability Awards, 2018 was a landmark year for Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust (CSGRT).

Last year was also a bumper year for CSGRT’s seal records. 113,616 seal identification photos from 347 volunteers and 4 systematic PIP teams were processed, covering 282 locations across Cornwall, Devon and the Isles of Scilly. Crucially this evidence base gave seals a voice in more than 12 major consultations.

Importantly, 2018 also saw some interesting seal activity. Milestones included ‘Lucky Star’ finally being rescued on 01/10 by Sue and Dan Jarvis, as well as ‘Windy Dog’ and ‘Millie’ being identified again, after absences of 4 and 9 years respectively. 

The CSGRT would like to give their thanks to everyone who sent them records in 2018 and to all the volunteers who have helped out in a multitude of ways.
