Welsh Marine Life Rescue has published a list of what to do and what not to do when sighting a seal on land in Pembrokeshire.

If seals are disturbed on land, they may flee back into the water and have a tough times, especially in rough and stormy weather.

Welsh Marine Life Rescue said that people must remember:

  • Keep your distance
  • Don't put a seal back in the sea
  • Keep your dog on a lead and quiet, at a distance
  • Don't share the location on social media (it may attract a crowd)
  • Report any seals in need or pups in public places in Pembrokeshire to us at WMLR or BDMLR if elsewhere 01825 765546
