New Baby Monk Seal Born at Larsen’s

A monk seal pup was born at Larsen’s Beach on April 9 2010 to a female Hawaiian monk seal from Oahu. She has used this area as a nursery for pupping in the past (one hanau). The next couple of months (while the pup is nursing) are very important to determine the success of the baby. The mother will then wean the pup and probably return to Oahu again.

Please respect orange fencing enclosing the pup and mom. Do not go inside. Do not try to get close for photos.

Please help keep dogs from the pup area.

DO NOT DISTURB THE MONK SEALS

Mahalo for your kokua.
