From the sunny Mediterranean, MOm's team found themselves in the dark North Sea in the framework of the East Adriatic Monk Seal Project, Phase II. MOm visited Germany to see the Grey and Harbor seal populations resting on the beaches of Heligoland, a Natura 2000 protected area and the Norddeich Seal Rescue Centre.


The high volume of tourism on the island and in the coastal areas of Lower Saxony is causing problems in living with the seals as there are frequent disturbances from people trying to approach them, as the official guardians of the areas have informed us. During this visit we learned how such incidents are handled by local and state authorities in Germany, what measures they take and the problems and conflicts that arise.

Finally the teams of MOm from Greece, PPNEA from Albania, CZIP from Montenegro and BIOM from Croatia together with EuroNatur, coordinator of the project, discussed about it's development, the victories, as well as the next steps that each country will be invited to take after the end of the project.
