Webinar: Hawaiian Monk Seals–Working to Recover the Endangered Seal of Hawai‘i
Join us for a webinar to learn about the latest research and status on Hawaiian monk seals!
Hawaiian monk seals, ʻīlioholoikauaua, are the world's only tropical seal and one of the most endangered seal species in the world. These unique seals only live in the Hawaiian Archipelago. The biggest segment of their population resides in the remote islands and atolls of Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument.
NOAA’s Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program works throughout the populated main Hawaiian Islands and the Monument to understand the biology of monk seals, what they need to survive, what threatens their survival, and how to help. Join us as Dr. Stacie Robinson, a research ecologist with the program, shares the latest updates on our research.
This presentation is part of the Third Thursday By the Bay Presentation Series at Mokupāpapa Discovery Center, the visitor center for Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument in Hilo, Hawaiʻi. This lecture series is also supported by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation through a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
