|CARIBBEAN MONK SEAL EXPEDITION 2000 TO DATE
In September of 2000 we received sighting information from Pastor Bob, saying that a seal had been seen on the north coast of Ile de la Tortue, but there was no photographic evidence. Despite numerous e-mails that have been returned to us and a letter to his ministry's head office, we have heard nothing further from him since then and have to assume that he is no longer on the island.
Plans to return to Haiti and complete our survey work in 2003 were shelved because of the political situation. This has been aggravated by severe hurricane damamge in recent years. We are monitoring and hope that circumstances and funding will be favourable at a later date so that we may provide additional evidence for the presence of monk seals in the West Indies..
