Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Alonissos, is a Greek island in the Aegean Sea. The island at its widest is 4.5 kilometres (3 miles) from northwest to southeast and at its longest is 20 kilometres (12 miles) from southwest to northeast. The area of the island is 64 km2. The island is mostly limestone.

Agriculture is widespread on Alonnisos, predominantly mixed farming and vineyards. The main products are almonds, grapes, figs and olives. Pine trees are abundant on the island. While fishing is a popular profession on the island, tourism is now the main industry.

Alonissos is an island ideal for those you want to unwind and enjoy leisure walks surrounded by pine forests, olive groves and orchards. The island is the most remote of the Northern Sporades island group, and plays host to the National Marine Park of Northern Sporades, a refuge for rare seabirds, dolphins and the Mediterranean monk seal, monachus monachus.

That was interesting, Marina; thank you!


Marina, an excellent lesson on "monk seal etiquette". Thank you. ♥♥♥


Hi Janet, it wouldn't be nice to meet a monk seal while swimming. They are wild animals and can be moody and dangerous. They are "friendly" to people but in their own way. They like to smell you, touch your body with their nose and sometimes nibble. The last one can be nasty. When people dive in the Marine Park are advised to come out of water when the seals approach and become "friendly".


Thank you Cathy, Valt and Lunie for your nice comments.
