The Monk Seal today

Since the 1970s, the Mediterranean monk seal is no longer present in the Gulf of Orosei, and the last confirmed sightings date back to the early 1980s.

A growing environmental awareness in the region could lead to a future reintroduction of the monk seal in the waters of the Gulf of Orosei.
