Title: HMSRP Hawaiian Monk Seal Major Veterinary Procedures
Status: In Work
Abstract:

This data set contains records created for Hawaiian monk seals undergoing major veterinary procedures by PSD personnel and/or cooperating scientists for special circumstances (e.g., surgeries on stranded animals, permitted sedation trial, etc.). Data includes medical records, feeding records, and anesthesia monitoring data. All original paper documents are housed at PIFSC Kewalo Research Facility or the NOAA Ford Island Facility.

Purpose:

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is the lead agency responsible for the recovery of the Hawaiian monk seal. Each year the NMFS Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center, Protected Species Division, Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program (HMSRP) conducts studies at the main breeding sites to provide information necessary to evaluate (1) the status and trends of the monk seal subpopulations, (2) natural history traits such as survival, reproduction, growth, behavior, and feeding habits, and (3) the success of various activities designed to facilitate population growth. Under special circumstances HMSRP may be required to perform medical procedures on injured wild animals. In addition, permits have or may be issued under special circumstances to conduct studies on live animals that may benefit the population as a whole. These studies may require veterinary procedures.
