It is seal pup season on the Isle of May! Every day seal pups are being born and over 2,500 will be born on the island between now and the end of December. Visitors to the Discovery Centre can zoom in on the seal pup action with the interactive live cameras - and for those who spot a seal pup being born, they will be awarded with their own seal adoption pack worth £30. Seal pups can pop out pretty fast - it is One Born in a Minute!
