Wadden Sea seals counted

This video says about itself:
Grey Seals (Part 1/3)
18 July 2013
Shortlisted for KFF 2007 – International Documentary Shorts.
A large part of Celtic legendGrey Seals have been revered in Ireland until recent times. Despite being protected by law, they continue to be prosecuted and in 2004 this culminated in the brutal slaughter of 60 seal pups at the Blasket Islands. This highly charged story is an account of a seal colony living on the very edge of Europe and on the very edge of survival.

These two videos are the sequels.
Translated from Ecomare museum on Texel island in the Netherlands:
Seals in Wadden sea counted – 30-12-2015
“A little bit less common seals and a bit more gray seals compared to last year.” That’s the result of the count of the number of seals in the international Wadden Sea this year; researchers saw 26,435 harbour seals and 4,521 gray seals. That somewhat less common seals were counted was already expected. In recent years the growth became less and last year these seals had to deal with a flu virus which mainly in Denmark and Schleswig-Holstein killed many seals.
Of the common seals, 7,666 were in the Dutch part of the Wadden sea. Of the gray seals, 3,544.
