2014 - Grant Awarded - £1000   

Between October and December visitors to the Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick are privileged to witness the full breeding cycle of the Isle of May and Craigleith grey seals on our interactive cameras.  The Isle of May National Nature Reserve is home to the largest grey seal colony on the east coast of Britain, numbering 4,000. This enthralling, wildlife drama comprises the whole journey from birth, mating and weaning, to the pups coming of age and taking to the sea on their own.

'One Born Every Minute' focused attention on this fascinating period of activity. We are extremely grateful to the support of Sea Changers in this event, which will hopefully become a regular part of our calendar. We were able to raise awareness of this event with visitors but also generally via social media and live streaming on our website.

  • We raised awareness of these apex predators
  • We inspired people to learn more about wildlife and the natural environment.
  • We encouraged interest from all age groups via a range of activities.
  • We used the opportunity to communicate with visitors on environmental issues that threaten the seals and other species of marine mammals.
