Text from original post: Monk seals breed in caves around our coasts but are under threat from development and fisheries bycatch. To identify their most important habitats and monitor their population, we set up a long-term monitoring project in 2016. Today the first results are published in The International Journal of Conservation, Oryx. Read the full article at this link: https://doi.org/10.1017/S0030605320000848


We would like to thank all contributors and supporters of this project especially the TRNC Ministry of Tourism and Environment, Department of Environmental Protection and the TRNC Ministry for Agriculture and Natural Resources, Department of Animal Husbandry.

Please notify us in case of any monk seal observations.
