Mediterranean monk seal conservation
Our objective is to improve the conservation status of the last great colony of Mediterranean monk seals, located in the Cap Blanc Peninsula (Mauritania-Morocco), through:
- Oversight and surveillance of the maritime-terrestrial “Seal Coast Reserve,” which protects the colony’s three breeding caves.
- Surveillance and monitoring of the Cap Blanc monk seal colony (Mauritania).
- Terrestrial and maritime inspections of Reserve boundary areas.
- Awareness and development campaigns directed towards the local population: artisan fishermen and students in Nouadhibou city and BancD’Arguin National Park educational centers.
The Foundation also participates in two LIFE projects, which are implemented in areas where this species is present, such as Madeira and Greece:
