MOm – Hellenic Society for the Study and Protection of the Monk Seal

Program support

The grant supports a scientific research program regarding the return of the monk seal to the area of the Argo-Saronic Gulf. Additionally, educational programs and awareness-raising events will be implemented throughout the entire region, aimed at schools as well as targeting specific interest groups, such as fishermen and residents of areas where seal activity has been detected. 

The Hellenic Society for the Study and Protection of the Monk Seal, widely known as “MOm”, is a Greek environmental not-for-profit organization, founded in 1988, aiming at preserving the sea and seafront environment through the study of the monk seal’s biology and its protection by all lawful means.
