Preliminary assessment of habitat utilization by Hawaiian green turtles in their resident foraging pastures. The Hawaiian monk seal, one of the rarest pinniped (seal and sea lion) species on Earth, was listed as Endangered under the US Endangered Species Act (ESA) in The Pearl and Hermes Reef, Midway Atoll, and Kure Atoll). Each site contains a subpopulation of seals .

    WHEREAS, beach counts of the endangered Hawaiian monk seal at Kure Atoll have declined by over 80% since the U.S. Coast Guard occupation of Green Island at Kure Atoll; and WHEREAS, the precipitous decline in number of seals was reversed by the captive care of weaned female pups and the introduction of yearling female seals under the "Head.

Mean beach counts of Hawaiian monk seals (non-pups) at the main reproductive rookeries (excluding Midway Atoll), in the main Hawaiian Islands is, say, 40 ±10 seals (i.e., a coefficient of variation of ), then an estimate of the minimum population size in the main Islands is 33 seals.

The Hawaiian monk seal is the last surviving species in its genus, and is endemic to the 1,mile long Hawaiian Islands archipelago, from Hawai'i Island to Kure Atoll. Only about 1, Hawaiian monk seals are left in the world and their population is much lower than historic levels.

This data set contains records of all individually identified Hawaiian monk seals since These seals were identified by PSD personnel and cooperating scientists as part of the ongoing monk seal population assessment efforts.

In addition, this data set contains records for all seals tagged by USFWS in earlier years and still present in the population when the current research effort began.

Dotted lines around islands represent the {a isobath. Adapted. The mother seal loses a tremendous amount of weight while nursing.

The Hawaiian monk seal is one of the rarest marine mammals in the world. Part of the "true seal" family, they are one of only two remaining monk seal species.

The other is the Mediterranean monk seal, and a third monk seal species, the Caribbean monk seal, is extinct. Species Status. Hawaiian monk seals occur almost exclusively in the Hawaiian Archipelago, with occasional sightings at Johnston Atoll.

Most monk seals are found at eight primary sites: Necker Island, Nihoa Island, French Frigate Shoals, Laysan Island, Lisianski Island, Pearl and Hermes Reef, Midway Atoll, and Kure Atoll) in the remote, largely uninhabited Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI).

The historic and current abundance of monk seals in the main Hawaiian Islands (MHI, Fig. 1) is not well sightings of monk seals in the MHI in the early 20th century were documented by Kenyon and Rice ().Beginning in the s, an increasing number of monk seal births and sightings have been recorded in the MHI, but because these reports are not based on systematic surveys.

This endangered seal is found only in the Hawaiian Islands. Its primary habitat lies in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands – a chain of uninhabited islands extending over 1, miles (2, km) northwest from Kauai to Midway Island and Kure atoll.

The Hawaiian monk seal is one of the most critically endangered seal species in the world. Science Blog Field Notes: Partnering to Protect Monk Seals and Sea Turtles in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. The NOAA Ship Oscar Elton Sette is departing on May 15th for a day research expedition throughout the Hawaiian Islands to support research and recovery of the endangered Hawaiian monk seal and threatened green sea turtle.

The first comprehensive Recovery Plan for the Hawaiian monk seal (Gilmartin, ) was a major step forward in the concerted efforts at a national level to save the species from extinction.

However, more than 20 years later the species was still in dangerous decline, and the Recovery Plan was revised in .Director’s Report to the 44th Tuna Conference on Tuna & Tuna-Related Activities at the Southwest Fisheries Science Center for the Period May 1, to Ap Hawaiian monk seals are one of the few seal species that will foster and nurse another female’s pups.

Male monk seals are known to be aggressive enough to kill females of their own species. Hawaiian monk seals live up to 25 to 30 years in the wild, but their lives are too often cut .
