#ICYMI The Hawaiian monk seals are adopted to be Hawaii's state mammal. When it is not hunting and eating, it generally basks on the sandy beaches and volcanic rock of the Northwest Hawaiian Islands. . . . #actuallyitsaharpseal #zoo #animals #sandiego #sandiegozoo #socal #hawaiianmonkseal #hawaiiboys #instagay #thegaypassport #hawaiilife #fun #humor #onetake #weekendwithfriends @murakami.yoshiyuki

Sunday #mood. 😊 image courtesy of Hawaiian monk seal research program. . Did you know there are only about 1,400 Hawaiian monk seals? #Pollution is one of their biggest threats. Despite over 700 metric TONS of #debris being removed from the #northwesthawaiianislands, the accumulation rates remain the same. 😑 . . In better news - have you guys seen all the local news that #rocky is pregnant and about to give birth to another pup? 🙌🙌 . #wildalohafoundation #wildlife #hawaiianmonkseal #seal #wildlifeprotection #conservation #plasticpollution #bycatch #hawaii #beach #oahu #puppiesofthesea #fisheries #lazysunday #savetheanimals #cutie #ocean #marinewildlife #life #truth #smiles #hawaiianmonksealresearchprogram

Hawaiian Monk Seals touch down for a nap. 🌅 I was standing back about 30 feet but some people were very close. Please keep your kids away bc this mama bites! 😬 #808 #Hawaiianmonkseal #respectwildlife

As I was swimming at the beach closest to our house at sunset this evening, I noticed a weird shape in the water. At first I thought it was a giant sea turtle swimming towards me but it’s back was way too smooth…Turns out it was a mother monk seal and her pup! ✨❤️ Nature always amazes me and is full of surprises...Don’t forget, though, if you are lucky enough to witness wildlife unexpectedly, please be respectful and keep a safe distance. We all get excited and truthfully I was probably too close when I took this footage. #monkseal #hawaiianmonkseal #808 #NOAA

Beachin’ with this Hawaiian monk seal, but keeping my distance because he is part of an endangered species. These seals are the only ones native to Hawaii, but human practices have driven them nearly to extinction. The population of these magnificent creatures has been destroyed by fishing nets, marine debris, and previous commercial hunting for their skins. I truly hope that one day humans will learn to coexist with other species peacefully, so that future generations can appreciate the animals we know and love today.

The Hawaiian Monk Seal was listed on the Endangered Species Act as of November 1976 and remains listed today with fewer than an 1,200 individuals left of their kind. In the next 3-4 years biologists have estimated that that number will drop below 1000; I believe critically endangered is actually the proper term. There are many conservation efforts for these adorable creatures throughout the Hawaiian Islands, find out how you can make a positive impact and help with the aim to save this species! Being aware of your own human impact will make the greatest difference! #hawaiianmonkseal #endangeredspecies #actnow #oceanconservation #saveourseas #oceanphotography #oahu #hawaii #monkseal #ecodiving #ecohawaii #ecoadventure #ecotourism

Remember Rocky, RH58, the rock star #hawaiianmonkseal mom that gave birth to Kaimana (her 10th pup) at #kaimanabeach last summer? Well, she’s due to give birth to another pup, possibly this Sunday. But will she return to #Kauai or to #KaimanaBeach #waikiki? Only she could tell us. @noaafisheries reminds the public to give protective monk seal moms plenty of space. Best not to swim near monk seal moms and pups . A pupdate will be in tomorrow’s @staradvertiser. 📷 Rocky and Kaimana at Kaimana Beach by @cindyellenrussell #hawaiianmonkseals #endangeredspecies #monkseals #rockyandkaimana #hawaiiwildlife

No ocean swims for me. Seals have reclaimed their territory. I was told this is a 5 year old female. She’s on the same beach as the 2 moms. She was born here. There were 2 males farther down! Had the best day with the seals. #islandlife #hawaii #kauai #luckywelivekauai #hawaiianmonkseal #monkseal #protectouroceans #beachlife #endangeredspecies #aloha ✌🏼💙

Swipe for several baby pics. This little pup was so active that mom finally put her head on him/her to stay put 😂😆. This was taken 1 1/2 weeks ago. Seal was 1week old. #monkseal #hawaiianmonkseal #seal #endangeredspecies #protectouroceans #hawaii #kauai #islandlife #luckywelivekauai #aloha ✌🏼💙

A sleepy monk seal (llio holo I ka uaua or "dog that runs in rough water" in Hawaiian) named Ipo taking a rest. Ipo is 13 years old and just molted her old algae covered coat to reveal her nice new gray fur. She is one of about 250 monk seals left in the Hawaiian islands and one of only 1300 to 1400 left in the world. #monkseal #hawaiianmonkseal #endangeredspecies #sealsofinstagram #sealife #wildlife #wildlifephotography #marinemammal #marinelife #beachlife #hawaii #oahu #hawaiilife #savetheseals #endangered #teamcanon #islandlife #islander #hawaiianislands #saltlife #oceanlife #pacificocean #sleepy #oneeyeopen #wildplanet #instawildlife #nature #naturephotography #incamera #nofilter

I’d been waiting for this moment the entire time I’ve been here in Hawaii — finally, yesterday afternoon, I got to swim alongside a Hawaiian Monk Seal!!!! I had seen them on land multiple times, seen them in the water while I was on land, but seeing one in the water while I was diving was what I’ve waiting for! And I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Everybody warns that they tend to be pretty aggressive and territorial in the water, however I didn’t witness that at all [it was also the last thing that crossed my mind in the moment]; when she noticed me noticing her she came out from the ledge she was curled under [probably to size me up... and she was hugeeee] and just floated upside down rubbing her head against some rocks! I very slowly approached her, yet still gave her plenty of space, and she just watched me while I watched back snapping photos and standing my ground for a good probably 10 minutes [half the time I forgot to even click the shutter cause I was so mesmerized]. It was amazing, everything about the energy, the body language and the curiosity on both parts! I’m still so pumped when I think about it!! They literally look like a puppy or kitty the way they look at you with their big eyes, and they have so much expression in their faces, I can’t even, they’re just this adorable huge blubber and I wanted to hug her so bad! One day, maybe I’ll be a monk seal whisperer! So much love!!!! 💙 #HawaiianMonkSeal #endangeredspecies #monkseal #scubadiving #ecoadventure #bucketlist #newbestfriend #oceanconservation #oceanphotography #nativespecies #turningthetide #underwaterphotography #thinblueline #waterinspired #divelife #scuba #sharkscove #oahu #divehawaii

An incredibly amazing experience yesterday while out on a dive with some customers at #SharksCove ✨ Hawaiian Monk Seal spotted late morning out to the right of the cove! It’s not a very common thing to get to swim along these adorable giants however our team got to check off a bucket list item with this lovely surprise! She was spotted relaxing under a ledge and came out to mutually investigate once she was spotted. There was no aggressive behavior at all, she was curious and calm and our dive group gave her plenty of room to feel comfortable. Stay tuned, we will be posting more of her through the next few days, our instructor got some great #GoPro footage and our photographer @munsea_inspired snagged some rad stills! To #coexist is life!!! 🙌🏽 #hawaiianmonkseal #sharkscove #endangeredspecies #monkseal #northshore #oahu #comedivewithus #ecodiving #ecoadventure #ecotourism #ecohawaii

🌊🌴spotted a 3 year old endangered Hawaiian monk seal, swam, explored, and needed a first aid kit at Poʻipū Beach today! 🏝🌺(We are fine). It’s amazing to learn about the precious wildlife of the islands. The Hawaiian monk seal population is around 1,400, and is highly endangered. The seal can only be found surrounding the Hawaiian islands today. This place is so beautiful and we both are so lucky to be here!

Sunset in #Trieste, overlooking the Adriatic Sea, former stronghold of the once prodigious Mediterranean monk seal. Huge solitary great whites still cruise here, in historical context, not yet accepting of their prey’s disappearance. Christopher Columbus once wrote to the Spanish Kings, in mention of Caribbean monk seals that crowded the bays of the New World, all now extinct. And in faraway Hawaii, earth’s only other monk seals slip quietly between islands. #monkseal #mediterraneanmonkseal #caribbeanmonkseal #hawaiianmonkseal #nature #greatwhites #writer #travel #sunset #travelgram
