Monk seal in naupaka understory – mauka of roped off area

Another monk seal is spending time at Lepeuli Beach and Ka`aka`aniu Reef. This male has hauled out near the mom and pup mauka of the roped off area. This naupaka stand is one of the few remaining in the beach area of Lepeuli since the recent shorefront clearing. The seal is obviously using the understory habitat for resting and shade.
