The LIFE MADEIRA MONK SEAL project (LIFE13 NAT/ES/000974) “Monk Seal Conservation in Madeira and Development of a Monitoring System for its Conservation Status”, which ended at the end of 2019, was planned with the aim of culminating in a Strategy for the Conservation of the Monk Seal in Madeira.

This is a document that identifies the pressures and threats to this population, based on the significant increase in knowledge about the conservation status of the species and its habitat acquired through the implementation of the LIFE project, and proposes the necessary actions to ensure that this extremely vulnerable population remains viable.

This strategy was recently approved by government resolution 916/2020 of 17 November.
