Together with the Tethys Research Institute (Ionian Dolphin Project), we are gathering information on Monk seal sightings from boaters and the general public.

Please respect theses rules for the welfare of the animal :

  • Stay 30 meters away from the sea
  • Move or move away slowly if the animal seems disturbed by your presence
  • Avoid making noise (put your engine in neutral if you are on a boat)
  • Avoid feeding, touching or swimming with them.
  • Keep pets away as they could transmit diseases to seals.
  • Tell others about these rules
