Monk Seal Initiative-UNEP/Spain

The Mediterranean Monk seal is endangered, and one of its few remaining undisturbed habitats is off the coast of Mauritania. Spain and the UNEP (United Nations Environmental Program agency) have teamed up on these and several other initiatives to protect and preserve.

" As part of the Spain-UNEP Partnership for Protected Areas, this project helps facilitate the action plan for Monk Seal conservation in Mauritania.

This short film demonstrates how the initiative aims to protect the critically endangered Monk Seal and increase food security and income generation for the coastal community at the Cap Blanc Satellite Reserve."
