Monk Seal Picnic at Larsen’s

Currently beachfront plants on Larsen’s Beach are being cleared (illegally) in preparation for construction of a fence which will cut off access to ancient Lepeuli coastal trail.The permit allowing cow pasturing along the beach claims there is no endangered wildlife or historic significance at Larsen’s, or Ka’aka’aniu.

Cows pastured on steep land along the beach will cause severe erosion, destroying fragile reef and habitat.

Trees sheltering monk seals and turtles resting on public coastal land are now being cut down.

The area is also home to endangered plants, albatross, and precious marine resources harvested by Hawaiian cultural practitioners since before contact with white man.
