Desertas Islands (Ilhas Desertas) host a nature preserve, famous for its conservation program for a monk seal, known as sea-wolf​ (lobo marinho in Portuguese). September-October is the breeding season for these rare mammals so there is a better chance to spot them and their offsprings. However, bear in mind that monk seals are usually very shy and avoid contact with people.
