GREY SEALS OF NORTH WALES with Dawn Thomas
Friday 25th September 7.30pm
Considering they're marine mammals, grey seals can spend a lot of their time on land - they do so for many reasons. Dawn Thomas, NWWT Living Seas Project Officer, will guide you through what makes a seal a seal. Watching them can be fascinating, and she will explain why it's important we all know how to appreciate these privileged encounters.
This event will be presented via the Zoom app and you will need a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone to view. The session will last no more than 90 minutes.
If you would like to book a place, please e-mail Mark.
