You’d be seal-y to miss it..

Have your say

WORLD Animal Day is certain to enjoy a seal of approval at Deep Sea World in North Queensferry tomorrow with a series of feeding demonstrations by the semi-aquatic mammals.

Two stars at the attraction, seals Morag and Heather, will form the centrepiece of celebrations which will include talks as well as an online photographic competition.

World Animal Day began in Florence, Italy, in 1931 and is now recognised throughout the world.

Further events will take place at the venue on Saturday and Sunday this week.

Scottish waters are officially home to two species of seal – the common seal and the grey – although occasional visitors also include hooded and harp seals. Common seals can often be seen on mudflats or sandbanks.
