Mudflat walking organisations save seals
Luckily, it can also go differently: During the last week, eight seals were brought in by various mudflat walkers’ organisations. On June 16th, (the same day that a guide from the ‘Free Mudwalkers’ left a baby seal to fend for itself) mudflat walker Tjaard van Hoorn brought two seal babies to the SRRC and on June 22nd, two baby seals were rescued by guides from Dijkstra’s wadlooptochten.

Lenie ’t Hart: “Luckily, all mudflat walking guides really love the mudflats and their inhabitants. It is a real exception when someone leaves an animal to fend for itself. All the other mudflat walking organisations take responsibility for an animal in need.”
