FoHS Video: Volunteering with Friends of Horsey Seals

Here’s a chance for you to learn what being a seal warden means, and see what wardens do.

Al Glenton of Norfolk Images very kindly donated his expertise as a video-maker to record something of the experience of seal wardens at Horsey.  See clips of wardens’ initial training, and hear the views of a trainee.   Listen as more experienced wardens take a break from duty to tell us what being a seal warden means to them, and how they interact with visitors.   

Al’s video captures the atmosphere of the seal colony and seal behaviour on the beach and includes interviews with visitors.  Al visited RSPCA Wildlife Centre at East Winch, Norfolk.  East Winch manager, Alison Charles, talks about the co-operation between FoHS and East Winch, and the second link (below) takes you on a brief video tour of the centre’s treatment area and the outside pools.

We hope you enjoy it!
