Hawaiian Monk Seal on Kauai

Hi everyone,

My mom and my sister just sent me this picture from Poipu Beach in Kauai.

I’ve never seen a Hawaiian monk seal (or any monk seal, to be honest) and as far as I know they’re not considered common, so I wasn’t sure if I should report it on here, or if it’s like reporting a sighting of an impala in Kruger.. but I figured “why not”

There was even a sign explaining about their ecology and saying not to disturb it, according to my sister.

    Wow! Definitely worth sharing!

    Thanks. I’ll be heading out there in January hoping to see one.
