Seal-world (2016) said, “Researchers believe that the Mediterranean Monk Seal is very shy and doesn’t like to be around humans. This could explain why they have moved from giving birth on land to doing so in the caves under the water. As people continue to move closer and closer into the natural habitat area of these seals it is going to require them to continue further adaptations of their current behaviors.” There are many threats to the survival of the Mediterranean monk seal such as habitat loss or deterioration, deliberate killing by fishermen, accidental entanglement and drowning in fishing gear. Lack of foods and water pollution can also contributed to Mediterranean monk seal mortality (Karamanlidis, A. & Dendrinos, P. 2016).
