Mediterranean monk seal is considered to be the rarest and most endangered seal in the world. In this seminar i tried to explain the structure and the behavior, habitats, threats to the entire specie and human efforts to save monk seals. As it happens with the most of the species, only when they are on the brink of extinction, a man tries to save them, and then it's usually too late. The monk seal is no exception. This fascinating but shy mammal has almost disappeared from the face of the earth in the 20th century. At one time even considered to be extinct, but human efforts and awareness-raising and education of the entire population has led to the monk seals still have a promising and secure future. Females are very caring mother, and would give life to protect her cubs, they are extremely good swimmers and they are incredibly adaptable species. With dolphins, they are probably the most interesting species of the Mediterranean Sea. As the Adriatic sea is the part of Mediterranean sea, the Mediterranean monk seal is also our animal. All competent institutions should put much more effort and money to preserve the seal. The Mediterranean Sea is already considered to be the sea with very rare or almost no life, and we should do much more to avoid losing another precious species.
