Endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal video

Good clip of a Hawaiian Monk seal and a good article with some of the regulations covering viewing and dangers of these animals.

Mahalo for the link. Very cute! It is amazing that we can watch a 2 1/2 minute video of a monk seal essentially sleeping.

Uh oh; think I hurt myself jumping up & down (now; here's hoping it really happens)!

P.S. OK, it's not Hawaii, but sealife lovers, in need of a Friday morning jump-start, might want to take a look (the photo of the fellow carrying the youngster is worth a minimum of 1,000 words):

very cool ...

Love the Monk Seal Response Team ,,,

endearing the way Seal decides to come bask and own the beach in the process. He looks very comfy.

I've never seen one.
