2 monk seal multiple sighting at Yalıkavak, Bodrum Peninsula

2 monk seals were observed at a time and documented along Yalıkavak coasts, NW Bodrum Peninsula in 28 July 2017. This rare observation proves once again that Yalıkavak and Küdür Peninsula coasts are still important to Mediterranean monk seals along Turkish coasts.

SAD-AFAG thanks Hacer Özil for this prominent monk seal sighting record and video documentation proving the existence of the species along Yalıkavak. Küdür Peninsula is one of the remaining untouched coasts and provides last remaining coastal habitats for the survival of Mediterranean monk seals in the region.
