2017 - Grant Awarded - £600

St. Mary’s Seal Watch wardens engage with the community to raise awareness about grey seal biology, behaviour and the impact of disturbance to them. To reduce the extremely high levels of disturbance on this part of the nature reserve our trained volunteers facilitate responsible wildlife watching and guidelines on best practice when visiting this wildlife sensitive site. To increase the presence of seal wardens we wish to continue recruiting and supporting local volunteers/seal wardens to work in the community for the next 12 months. To improve the conservational value of St. Mary’s Island LNR the team of dedicated volunteers generously give their time to protect and preserve this natural habitat and the wildlife that makes it home. The organisation and its work has only been possible with the generosity of our volunteers and the community. The Sea-Changes grant will enable St. Mary’s Seal Watch to reimburse expenses to many volunteers.  It will help recruit new and support existing volunteers who may not be able to donate both their time and cover the cost of expenses incurred which will in turn see our team of wonderful volunteers grow and their great work be a legacy for future generations.
