#MarineWildlife - The Irish Film Institute (IFI) in Dublin is hosting special screenings of a new documentary that celebrates 100 years of the first wildlife species to be protected under law.

Lanugo: The Great Grey Seal/100 Years, 100 Voices marks the centenary of the UK's Grey Seals (Protection) Act 1914, with people from all walks of life, from fishermen to scientists, folklorists and more talking the legacy and future of the grey seal on the shores of Britain and Ireland.

"Among the first species threatened by biodiversity loss and most sensitive to climate change, they are as pertinent to our future today, as when their vulnerability was first recognised," say the team behind the film.

Produced by Brendan Rice, founder of the Irish Seal Sanctuary, and directed by filmmaker David Kavanagh, Lanugo will be screened at the IFI in Temple Bar this Saturday 13 December and next Wednesday 17 December at 10.30am (more details HERE).

All are welcome to the screenings but advance registration is required - contact [email protected].
