  • Orphaned Mediterranean Monk Seal Pups Under Rehabilitation – SAD/AFAG (2010)

    Orphaned Mediterranean Monk Seal Pups Under Rehabilitation – SAD/AFAG (2010)

    The Mediterranean monk seal is a critically endangered marine mammal. Only about 100 indididuals (including reproducing adults and juveniles) are left in the wild along the 8500 km long Turkish coast. Dilara and Tina are two orphaned Mediterranean monk seal pups (Monachus monachus) found in December 2010 along Turkish Mediterranean coast. Both pups were immediately taken under ex-situ rehabilitation and care in Fo├ža Monk Seal Rehab Unit by SAD-AFAG. Unlike the previous experiences, SAD-AFAG team tried an innovative feeding technique, […]
