Informative Seminar for the Rescue of the Mediterranean Seal at the Rigas Hotel Skopelos

Dear partners, 

On Tuesday 17/05/2022, the Rigas Hotel Skopelos was pleased to host on the premises of the Seminar on her rescue Seal Monachus Monachus


It was an informative seminar, as part of the program "Conservation of the Mediterranean Seal in the wider area of ​​the Alonissos National Marine Park of the Northern Sporades." The seminar was coordinated by MΟm (Society for the Study and Protection of the Mediterranean Seal) in collaboration with the 1st Skopelos Scout System and with Scouts members of the Wildlife Rescue Team. 

During the seminar, very important information was communicated regarding the ways and means of rescue and care of the Mediterranean Seal, especially newborn seals, until they are delivered to the appropriate facilities of Mom for further care.


After the end of this useful Seminar, it was handed over to the head of the System Mr. Th. Fadaki as well as to the members of the scout group, a rescue kit for sampling, care and research for the Monachus Monachus seal. 

It is the duty of all of us to protect these wonderful creatures. A simple way is our respect for the environment but also the immediate provision of care, if we have the knowledge, when we meet a seal that needs help.

The Rigas Hotel Skopelos but also the "Spyrou Skopelos Experience" , always aware and with a chronic contribution to the protection of the environment in various ways, appeal to the inhabitants and visitors of the islands of the Northern Sporades to take care of their flora and fauna. In addition, it is necessary to turn to specialist caregivers in case they find any seals that need help.


Taking care of the environment concerns us all.
