GEO Reportage Die Odyssee der Mönchsrobbe

The monk seal is one of the most mysterious mammals of the Mediterranean. The last 500 animals live in Greece and Turkey, extremely secluded in underwater caves that are difficult to access. A Swiss research team uses sophisticated camera installations to learn more about the seals' behavioural patterns in order to better protect them.
