At this time of year Harbour Seals (Common seals) are giving birth around our shores. These are the seals that suffered greatly from the deadly virus PDV (Phocine Distemper Virus) last year.
The Irish Seal Sanctuary asks all people to enjoy our wildlife but, please stay away from breeding colonies. As ANY disturbances will separate mother and pup.
For further information regarding seals encounters or what to do please refer to our
"Seal Pages" under "If you should find a seal pup" and "Seal Encounters"
