Tel Aviv beach seems to be a prime sunbathing spot for an endangered monk seal

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez. A beach in Tel Aviv seems to be a prime sunbathing spot. At least Yulia seems to think so. The endangered Mediterranean monk seal became an overnight sealsation (ph) when she turned up at the beach last Friday. Yulia is apparently shedding her winter coat, which can be a dayslong process. Spotting a monk seal is very rare in Israel. So, Yulia, go ahead. Soak up and seal in as much sunshine as you want. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
