It is one of the attractions of tourists and locals who enjoy the beaches of northern France at the moment: seals, present in numbers on the sandbanks. The France Télévisions teams thus met Jérôme Gressier, an enthusiast who spends long hours observing them. “At low tide, they come and settle there, to get fat, rest and prepare for their future hunts at sea “, he says.
On this site of the Walde lighthouse, near the town of Marck (Pas-de-Calais), the seal colony will see its numbers increase by 30% each year. Good news for this fragile species. Some baby seals, lost far from their colony, find refuge in a care center in Calais (Pas-de-Calais). They learn to feed themselves before reaching the sea again, and to be able to fend for themselves.
