At the initiative of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, a meeting of Mediterranean monk seal experts is to be held within the context of Monaco’s research on the Yersin exploration vessel in Madeira
The Mediterranean monk seal (Monachus monachus) is one of the most endangered mammals in the world, with the global population being estimated at only 500 individuals living in the Mediterranean and the near Atlantic. There are two main reasons for the vulnerability of the Mediterranean monk seal: on the one hand, fishermen view the species as competition for fisheries resources and, on the other, the species has been affected by the degradation of its habitat due to urbanisation and tourism.
This meeting, to be held on 6 September 2017, should help create a solid, lasting dynamic between the different projects aimed at protecting Monachus monachus populations.Read more
