APPLICATIONS FOR 2019 SEASEAL POSITIONS ARE NOW OPEN! 

SeaSeal is our dedicated land-based, Atlantic grey seal photo-ID project. The aim of the project is to create a catalogue of individual grey seals in Cardigan Bay to discover more about their travelling habitats and areas that are important to them.

We are looking for a SeaSeal volunteer for the period of 25th March – 5th July 2019 and another volunteer for the period 1st July – 4th November 2019.  Priority will be given to those that can volunteer for the full research season.

 What You Will Gain

Undertaking the SeaSeal project is a unique opportunity for you to carry out marine mammal research and contribute to conservation. You’ll learn about the Atlantic grey seals of Cardigan Bay and gain experience in field work, wildlife photography, photo-ID, data entry, report writing and much more. This role can be a stepping stone to a career in marine research or conservation.

The Volunteer Role 

The SeaSeal volunteer will conduct land based seal surveys, photograph seals, conduct photo-ID,  analyse data and write the annual SeaSeal report. You can read about 2018 SeaSeal surveys here.

We’re looking for dedicated volunteers with a passion for marine mammals, experience of photography and photo ID work who are mature and proactive.
