Every year WRAS holds an AGM and invites speakers to attend, this year WRAS is privileged to have one of the UK’s leading seal rescue and rehabilitation experts attending to give a talk about his work helping to rescue, treat and eventually release common and grey seals in Scotland. Jamie has also helped rehabilitate turtles which have become lost in UK waters too. Jamie was also involved in helping to transport and release some hooded seals which had become lost and found themselves down in the Canary Islands. These were flown up to Scotland and Jamie helped release these off the north coast of Scotland.

Jamie currently works for British Divers Marine Life Rescue in running a small seal hospital in Scotland is in the process of finishing the final stages of rehabilitating 9 common seals which he has hand reared over the past few months.

The talk is free of charge but there is a suggested minimum donation of £2. There will be a raffle which will include tickets to this years Panto at Eastbourne’s Congress Theatre.
