About this book

Cornwall's most iconic marine mammal, the grey seal is also its most reliable and frequently spotted, despite being one of the rarest seal species in the world. Cornish grey seals are part of a genetically distinct sub-population that is globally significant. It is our international, moral and legal obligation to protect grey seals, yet there is much still to be discovered about this charismatic species. Seal Secrets: Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly provides a glimpse of the hidden and secret world of grey seals around the coasts of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, from 'cradle to grave'. It includes real stories about individual wild seals.

"a lovely, informative and well laid-out book. Great quality pics and excellent printing"
- John F. Robins, Founder of Save Our Seals Fund, 14.03.12
