Disentangling the impact of Late Quaternary climate change from human activities can have crucial implications on the conservation of endangered species. We investigated the population genetics and demography of the Mediterranean monk seal ( Monachus monachus ), one of the world's most endangered marine mammals, through an unprecedented dataset enc...

Disentangling the impact of Late Quaternary climate change from human activities can have crucial implications on the conservation of endangered species. We investigated the population genetics and demography of the Mediterranean monk seal ( Monachus monachus ), one of the world's most endangered marine mammals, through an unprecedented dataset enc...
Article
Full-text available
We provide the first complete set of survival rate estimates for the Endangered Mediterranean monk seal Monachus monachus from birth into adulthood, as well as the first age-specific reproductive rates for the species. From 2002 to 2016, we obtained individual seal live encounter data through non-invasive monitoring techniques that were analyzed to...

The African manatee (Trichechus senegalensis) is found in 21 countries, but very little is known about its movement patterns and habitat use. A unique opportunity to study the species occurred in January 2009, when five manatees were rescued from behind a new dam in a seasonal tributary of the Senegal River in eastern Senegal, and released back int...
Article
The Mediterranean monk seal (Monachus monachus) is one of the world’s most endangered marine mammals. Centuries of human persecution along with recent expansion of the fishing industry and intensive shoreline development, have isolated Mediterranean monk seals into small populations in the eastern Mediterranean Basin and eastern North Atlantic. We...

Reintroductions continue to be an important conservation action for endangered species. Until this, all reintroduction projects for Mhorr gazelle (Nanger dama mhorr) had remained at the stage where the animals live in fenced protected areas of different sizes. This study describes the first experience of reintroduction of a group of 24 Mhorr gazell...

Important fishery activities are carried out in Mauritanian waters, close to one of the major breeding areas for Mediterranean Monk seal (Monachus monachus). Fisheries activities exert a strong pressure on the ecosystem and it is important to understand the ecological interactions between monk seals and fisheries. Information on feeding ecology of...
Article
Guinea-Bissau is host to the westernmost subpopulation of the common hippopotamus Hippopotamus amphibius , which is one of only two known populations inhabiting coastal waters. The presence of hippopotamuses causes conflict with rice farmers as a result of crop damage and the absence of effective measures to protect crops. To develop an effective m...

Full-text available
The Mediterranean monk seal Monachus monachus is the most endangered seal species. In this review we summarize the status, ecology, and behaviour of the Mediterranean monk seal, and identify the main threats that currently affect the species and the conservation priorities for securing its survival. Once abundant throughout the Black Sea and Medite...
Article
Full-text available
The most important surviving colony of the critically endangered Mediterranean monk seal (Monachus monachus) inhabits the Atlantic Saharan coast. The population has not recovered despite the cessation of commercial sealing in the second half of the 20th century. We report the distribution of the monk seals within the region from 1940 to 1989 and th...
Article
Full-text available
Environmental and demographic stochasticity alone can push small populations to extinction. However, some small populations can persist for a long time at a low density, maintaining potential for rapid growth. We investigated the demographic mechanisms underlying the response of the population of the Mediterranean monk seal Monachus monachus on the...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The Mediterranean monk seal is a critically endangered species, where 30% of its population inhabit Mauritanian coasts. This species faces a range of threats incluiding fishery interactions; to understand the importance of this threat feeding ecology studies are necessary. Stomach contents of 22 seals recovered from 1997 and 2011 were studied, and...
Article
Full-text available
The breeding variables of the Mediterranean monk seal colony of Cabo Blanco peninsula were studied after a mass mortality episode that drastically reduced their size and altered their age-structure. A comparison of breeding variables data of the pre and post mortality event (1994-1997 versus 1997-2000) indicates : a reduction of annual productivity...
