This talk is aimed at sharing observations of natural wild seal behaviour gathered over two decades. If we begin to imagine what it might be like to be a seal, we can better appreciate what seals need from us. Beautifully illustrated with video content, discover the links seals make between sea and land, their main behavioural drivers and how their world is changing. We end with an optimistic plan for the future to ensure this wild marine heritage species thrives for future generations to smile about as well.

Sue Sayer is an internationally renowned researcher and author. For over 20 years, she has spent thousands of hours observing seals in the wild from land and at sea in Cornwall. To Sue there is no such thing as an average seal. Each one looks different, has an individual personality, range of habits and migration route around the Celtic Sea! Sue’s love for seals shines through as she talks about seals in her own unique and animated way. Sue founded the Seal Research Trust (est. Cornwall 2000) – a multi award winning, evidence-based conservation charity passionately protecting our precious marine habitas and species. Sue’s philosophy is inspired by the Ecozoic and is all about ‘sharing our seas successfully’.
