MEDITERRANEAN MONK SEAL

One of the six most endangered mammals in the world, according to WWF, the Mediterranean Monk Seal once ranged from Portugal to Senegal. Today just 500 remain in isolated clusters. Why they're in trouble: Hunting, habitat destruction, pollution, depletion of fish stocks and competition with fishermen all factored into the decline of the Mediterranean Monk Seal. Other seals, however, may be threatened by global warming, as Arctic and Antarctic habitats change rapidly
