Seal Rescue Ireland: Marketing and Media Coordinator

Seal Rescue Ireland (SRI) is a charity organisation which operates a busy
marine animal rescue and rehabilitation centre located in Courtown, Co.
Wexford. As the only facility that fully rehabilitates seals within the
Republic of Ireland, SRI responds to strandings nationwide. Most reports
are for young grey seal (Halichoerus grypus) and common seal (Phoca
vitulina) pups found sick, injured or orphaned across the Irish coastline.
In addition, SRI pursues understanding and public engagement of ocean
conservation and sustainability through education, community outreach and
research programmes. SRI has a growing social media presence, and is
gaining international recognition for its work.
