Initiate a conservation program for the Critically Endangered Mediterranean monk seal (Monachus monachus) in collaboration with key national stakeholders and relevant marine conservation initiatives in the Mediterranean Basin. This small grant aims to better understand the status of this seal in Lebanon and make efforts to conserve the species across its range along the Lebanese coast. This will be achieved through partnership with local stakeholders and establishment of a Mediterranean-wide working group to coordinate efforts to conserve the species across its range.

Strategic Direction: 3 Improve the conservation and protection status of 44 priority key biodiversity areas
