  • Eat of the Birds of Koolau

    Destination: Kauai

    Green sea turtle sunning on beachLast week, I went for a walk on Kauai’s Aliomanu Beach at sunrise. It was a beautiful sunrise. I mean, what sunrise isn’t, especially one that pokes her head above the Pacific Ocean as the warm sands of Hawaii prickle my toes?

Or, at least, really, really hungry. This Hawaiian monk seal mother (known as H58 to scientists or “Rocky” to the rest of us folks), hasn’t had a decent meal since she hauled her heavy body out of the surf one Thursday evening 5 weeks ago to give birth to her son.

    Destination: Kauai

    Here, set to an instrumental music track by the Hawaiian musician Makana, is a slide show portraying the first week of life of an endangered Hawaiian monk seal.
