Twenty-Seven Monk Seals Born this Year in Greek Habitats

The family of the Mediterranean Monk Seals, more widely known as Monachus monachus, has welcomed 27 new members since the start of the current breeding season.  This is according to the Hellenic Society for the Study and Protection of the Monk Seal (MoM).
The female seals chose the Aegean islands of Kimolos, Tinos, Karpathos and Thasos as well as the mainland coasts of Mani, Evia, Pilio, Argolida and Platamonas to give birth to their pups. (ana-mpa)
Considering that this year’s breeding season will end in a month, the new births revive hopes that the Monachus monachus monk seal, listed as a critically endangered species, will manage to survive and more baby seals are yet to be born shortly.
The Monachus monachus monk seals are currently threatened with extinction.  Only 500 individuals are known to exist. Half of these are in Greece, where their most important habitats are located.
