Default Seals

These Pictures were taken at the seal station National Park House:

The "seal station National Park House" is a powerful recognized service station for marine mammals. Between 30 and 80 orphaned seals, gray seals also are raised each year and then returned to the North Sea. The station is responsible for the whole of Lower Saxony Wadden Sea, which enjoys special protection as a biosphere reserve.

Over 50 volunteers - mostly Watt game wardens along the coast of Lower Saxony and on the East Frisian Islands - support the work of the station. Two keepers and four community service, and almost 30 interns provide the helpless discovered marine mammals. The station has a permanent veterinary care.

The carrier "Association for the Study and Conservation of the seal e. V." - is recognized charitable.

I like stories like this, people helping wildlife. Good for them! Really great expression on their faces, like a bunch of old guys enjoying a bath!

What a great organization that must be a fun place to visit. Oh, the photos are not bad either.

Stefan,

excellent shots and very nice scenery.
As a biologist it wold be a shame, that I didn't visit the national park until now.
But your pix give me some inspiration to make up for this.

Cheers,

Stefan

Those photos get the "seal of approval", absolutely fab the way you have caught the colours and super sharp.

That is a great series, Stefan-

Rice nice work. I like the seal shots with the excellent lighting, good contrast and color. Did you use the built-in flash unit or a Slave Flash?
