This program was coordinated by Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary. Designated people walked along the coast line in pre-assigned zones to look and monitor Hawaiian Monk Seal. The island was divided into 37 zones, with a team being assigned to each zone. Equipped with binoculars and cameras, my friend Lori and I monitored the area/beaches between Kapalua Bay and Pohaku Park ( S Turns Park), between 10 am and 1pm. We were not fortunate to see any monk seals, but we did see several turtles. We dont know what the results of the whole event are, but this was a fun day. I will post pictures of monk seals if any will become available, meanwhile, please enjoy these beautiful shots.
