We are dedicated to the preservation of the Hawaiian monk seal for current and future generations to come.
The Hawaiian monk seal is a species in crisis. There are currently less than 1,150 seals remaining and their numbers continue to decline by 4% per year. The challenges they face are numerous including shark predation, human disturbance and habituation, fishery interactions, habitat loss, entanglement in marine debris, infectious disease, and even intentional killings. If the current population trends aren’t reversed, it is estimated that by the year 2014, there will be less then 1,000 Hawaiian Monk Seals remaining.
Despite the many obstacles, there is hope. With focused protection and conservation efforts, the monk seal can be saved. Your support is needed to help build the teams and programs that will help save this very special species from extinction.
