LONDON – If you’ve ever visited the Thames River running through London, England probably the last thing that springs to mind is that it would be home to seals.
In fact, the Thames Estuary is home to an estimated 3,500 thousand seals according to the Zoological Society of London – a number which has doubled since it carried out its first annual survey in 2013.
Case in point – check out the short video below taken last week by a rower on the Thames River who was surprised when a seal decided to hitch a ride on his boat.
Not only seals
The Thames Estuary is home to not only seals but also dolphins and even the occasional whale. Impressive for a river that was so polluted in the 1950s that it was declared biologically dead.
