The seal colony

There are always thousands of seals at Seal Rocks. The seals are frightened of people, so they run into the water when the scientists land.

The scientists usually spend just one hour at the colony. If they need to stay for longer, there is a stone hut for them to live in.

The seal colony is very noisy with thousands of seals calling out. It also has a strong smell of wet fur and seal poo.
