  • A Beautiful Hawaiian Monk Seal at Keauhou

    Destination: Hawaii Island

    hawaiian monk seal in tide pools at keauhouThere’s a big, fat Hawaiian monk seal asleep in the tide pools outside Keauhou Beach Resort right now.

    A couple months ago, one rascally Hawaiian monk seal appeared on a Kauai beach with extra baggage. That is, a giant ulua hook.

  • There is Hope for Hawaiian Monk Seals

    Destination: Kauai

    hawaiian monk seal and pup in waterFour years ago this week, a young Hawaiian monk seal gave birth to a healthy, little pup on a remote beach on Kauai’s North Shore. Sadly, the new mother showed absolutely no interest in her pup. She didn’t nuzzle it. She didn’t present her teats for nursing. It wasn’t the first time she had turned away from her offspring. This same female had birthed in very nearly the same spot the year before with the same result—she abandoned her pup.
