Grey Seal Pups

Now scientists are wondering whether a secret seal sanctuary on the south coast could be helping them breed in the south east.This could be a natural cove or secluded bay where grey seal pups are born and learn to swim before heading out to sea.A thriving colony on a sandbar off Ramsgate is evidence grey seals do live here but where are the pups.Newborn grey seals cannot swim so if any were born on the island they would drown as soon as the tide came in.They need to spend about three weeks on land after they’re born.
