Cornwall Seal Group (Research Trust) (CSG) is a conservation charity supporting a network of citizen scientists who survey their local seal populations in order to learn more about grey seals.

CSG encourage everyone to send in their seal sightings (even just one seal in the sea or on land) with a date and location from anywhere around the southwest – photos are a bonus as they help to confirm if it is a grey seal, whether it is male or female and perhaps even reveal its name and life history!

Please email sue@cornwallsealgroup.co.uk with your sightings.

So if you see a seal in the southwest, please remember to tell the Cornwall Seal Group.


If you are concerned about a live seal please call:

British Divers Marine Life Rescue who will send out a trained medic to assess the seal Tel: 01825 765546


If you have seen a seal disturbed as a result of human activity or a dead seal, please call:

Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s marine hotline Tel 0345 201 26 26


The CSG publish a number of very useful factsheets:

Male and female identification of Grey Seals

Grey Seals in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly


Grey Seals : Can you spot them? Who is who!

Advice for encounters with seals at sea (Useful for divers, snorkelers, surfers & swimmers)

Information for kayakers and organisers of kayaking trips around the coast

Key messages for seals

Admire from a distance – if they are looking at you, you are too close!
Leave seals as and where you find them
Be predictable – maintain slow, low profile, side on approach with constant direction, not stopping to look (this is what predators do!)


Three No nos!

NEVER flush them from the land into the sea
NEVER feed them – not matter how much they beg – practice ‘TOUGH LOVE’
NEVER put a seal pup back into the sea – if it needs help, it cannot be rescued from the sea!
