Stephen Westcott

Wanting to live a life worth living, Stephen has exhibited a talent for doing research that, more often than not, has been unfunded. Intermittent income, then, was generated by being a ferryboat skipper, wildlife walks and sea cruises leader, local newspaper nature columnist and above all as the scientific observer aboard Norwegian Antarctic krill trawlers in the Southern Ocean and aboard Japanese and Taiwanese refrigerated cargo vessels collecting tuna from the tropical Indian and Atlantic Oceans' tuna fleets. While seal studies have been his primary interest, he has made many smaller studies of the seals' neighbours and also was a pioneer of studies into marine debris impacts on wildlife and wild places. He lives with his lady in Cornwall, had two daughters - one of whom died following a heart operation - and two grandchildren. He continues to study the seals, but is grateful most of all for the love and friendship that underpins everything.

About Book

Stephen Westcott's Stepping Stones to the Seal Caves is a well-researched exploration of how grey seals have used remote British sea caves across the past several hundred years. He brings us into and shares the present having paddled a wave ski along massive tracts of the western coasts of Britain to make cave explorations and pathfinding seal studies over the past thirty years. From locations among the last wild places of Britain, what the seals are doing through the year - rearing pups, sharing the great winter moulting assemblies or resting between foraging trips - is elaborated, including hitherto unpublished research, along with anecdotes not only from his adventures but from the few who ventured there before him. It is also a love-letter to the gauntly beautiful places, atmospheres and to the seals with whom he has shared so much of his life.
