The Mediterranean monk seal, animal symbol of the risk of extinction due to the alteration of the sea by the hand of man, has returned to swim in waters where she was seen more from the 50s: the source of the Egadi Islands. "The news makes us proud," said the mayor of hot Favignana, Lucio Antinoro, who said of the return of the monk seal in the waters opposite the island of Marettimo. The good news was reported by some fishermen who also accompanied with a video image of the sighting.

THE WWF: "PROBABLE THAT THIS IS A SMALL COLONY" - The experts of WWF, which just Marettimo since 1985 have done over the years an intensive awareness-raising activities, analyzed the video made by the fishermen of Marettimo and have concluded that "is becoming more real the hypothesis that it is different specimens, a small colony almost certainly engaged in reproductive activity on site." The sighting is in addition to those recorded in recent years along the Italian coast, from the Tyrrhenian to the central Salento including the waters off the WWF Oasis in Policoro in the Ionian Sea to the coasts of Sardinia. "We really hope that his face back home to all the local communities that live along our coasts that a species so rare is a treasure to defend and preserve it with wisdom," said Fulco Pratesi, honorary president of WWF Italy, appreciating the message Environment Minister "who has done well to emphasize the importance of a responsible and fruitful involvement with the local populations." "A wonderful news - had in fact said Environment Minister Stefania Prestigiacomo - and, as a ministry, we intend to adopt a new attitude on this occasion, and we are confident, effective: we intend to appoint guardians of this treasure the community and the fishermen themselves Marettimo» .
