Desertas Islands: A trip to a natural reserve in Portugal that (almost) no one knows about

The engine on the rubber boat turns off, and we find ourselves at the mercy of the wind. In almost absolute silence, Rosa Pires dazzles the sea lion circling above the boat, now with her face on the surface, now circling with the boat’s engine in a serene natural dance. Empirically, a marine biologist accepts that this is a young male, which may be infested or in the coat molting phase. This is an unusual situation even for Rosa Pires, who has worked at sea off the Desertas Islands for almost 30 years, caring for the conservation of the Mediterranean monk seal (Monk Monk), the rarest and most endangered seal in the world. “They don’t usually have this behavior when they get too close to the boat for so long. Diving like a dolphin is also not often, but it happened, ”Rosa whispers with a wide smile.

There are 700 endangered fur seals left in the world, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

As soon as the boat is surrounded by three sea lions (the name by which the species is known in Madeira), Lourenço Alves, the nature watchman, throws his GoPro camera into the water. It is thanks to this video that the boy “13” will be identified by the side spots, “lingrinhas, who will be born in 2019”. “13” is one of the animals that interact with humans the most, a common male behavior characterized by two holes in the abdomen, while the female has more scars on her back due to the mating technique. An underwater ritual that features games of chasing in pairs loyal to each other and to their nest.
