We Love Monk Seals!

The Hawaiian Monk Seal haul themselves to the warm, sunny beaches of Hawaii to rest. Exhausted after a night of hunting, they often sleep for and entire day in the sand just above the surf, then get back in the ocean at sunset. Slumbering Monk Seals attract scores of curious tourist who will often study a motionless Monk Seal for hours trying to decide if it is even alive or injured.  Don’t worry, they are just fine.  This is very typical behavior! They need to regain their strength for feeding and defending themselves from predators and should never be approached or disturbed.  They are protected by law! We sometimes will see a monk seal resident hanging out on the shoreline at Coral Gardens! Keep your eyes open!
