Local authorities claimed Sunday that 700 endangered seals found deadon Russia's Caspian shore in the North Caucasus. Caspian seals, the Caspian Sea's sole mammals, have been listed as endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) red list since 2008.
The number of found creatures might grow. The reason of death has yet to be confirmed, the region's fisheries agency's press department stated, as reported by Russian official media source TASS.
The seals washed ashore on the coast of Dagestan, Russia's republic, beside the Caspian Sea, the world's biggest landlocked body of water.
The shoreline was surveyed by professionals from the Federal Fisheries Agency and prosecutors, and data was gathered for laboratory investigation. However, the inspection did not immediately uncover any signs of pollution.
In the past, natural factors were determined to be the culprit in a number of cases of mass seal mortality. At least three of these kinds of accidents were recorded in Kazakhstan this year, despite the country's extensive coastline along the Caspian Sea.

Caspian Seals Is The Only Mammals Found In The Caspian Sea

Sadly, the only animals that can be found in the Caspian Sea are Caspian seals, and in 2008, they were added to the endangered species list maintained by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
According to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the population of Caspian seals has been significantly impacted by a number of reasons, including excessive hunting, loss of their habitat, and climate change.
According to KASPIKA, an organization dedicated to the preservation of Caspian seals, earlier this year, the bodies of more than 140 Caspian seals were discovered washed up on the shores of the Caspian Sea in Kazakhstan.

Final Words

There is a great deal of inconsistency in the estimates of the total number of seals in the Caspian. The Caspian Environmental Protection Center estimated that there are 70,000 seals in the Caspian Sea, although the Caspian Fisheries Agency said that there are between 270,000 and 300,000 seals in the region.
