Grey Seals are the largest breeding seals found in the UK. Cornwall is extremely lucky to routinely see this globally rare seal species that is only present in the north Atlantic. The UK is home to 38% of the entire world’s population based on seal pup production. Despite this there are still fewer grey seals in the UK than red squirrels. All around the coasts of Cornwall there are organisations and individuals working to conserve what is one of Britains most iconic marine species.
Six images from this project won the Documentary Series in the British Wildlife Photography Awards in 2018.
