Nobody knows the whereabouts of “Profeta.” the baby Monk Seal, who has not been seen since April 22nd.
A normal situation, according to Rosa Pires. The biologist at the Institute of Forests and Nature Conservation said that the younger sea lions are very exploitative, so “Profeta” may have chosen a more reserved, yet unidentified place.
Rosa Pires also explained that by recovering and by hunting autonomously, Lobo Marinho’s offspring suggested that these prolonged absences could occur.
It remains now to know which route she will chose and what places on earth she will be visiting. In this sense, the biologist asks the collaboration of bathers and fishermen, in the background, and to all people, to report possible sightings to the Institute of Forests and Nature Conservation.
