Over 50,000 people visit the Seal Sanctuary every year (at the time of printing). Its opening on Whit Monday 1975 was a triumph for Ken and Mary Jones, the culmination of fifteen years of hard and often heartbreaking work. Orphans of the Sea is the enchanting story of those years, of how a beach cafe at Trevaunance Cove became, almost by accident, a refuge for the baby seals washed up on the beach; and of how it grew into the first Cornish Seal Sanctuary, sheltering not only seals, but many species of animals and birds in distress. Book exchange stamp to front endpage, creasing to spine, sticker pull to front cover and reader crease near spine on front cover.
