Volunteer action for the protection of the Mediterranean monk seal’s main shelter

On Saturday 4th of June, the WWF Greece field team with the participation of more than 40 volunteers, conducted a clean up expedition of the Mediterranean monk seal habitat in Gyaros. This action, as part of the CYCLADES LIFE project, aims to remove the waste that is transported to the distant beaches of Gyaros threatening the young individuals of this endangered species. In this expedition numerous locals participated, such as the Municipality of Syros, local bodies, photographers and journalists who saluted this initiative and promised to attend to similar ones in Gyaros in the near future.
