Rescued Monk Seal Tracked By Text

Robinson / MOm

How do you keep tabs on a rescued and released marine mammal?  Often rescues are tracked by satellite responders, but if you’re a mediterranean monk seal by the name of Victoria, everytime you surface you text your MOmReally.

MOm is a Greek organization working towards monk seal conservation, education, rehabilitation, and protection in the Greek islands.  The Monachus Guardian is another excellent websource for updates on conservation for both remaining species of monk seal: Mediterranean and Hawaiian.
