Endangered Hawaiian Monk Seals

HMS hawaiian monk seal dr. michelle barbieri

NOAA Permit# 10137-07

Hawaiian monk seals are found only in the Hawaiian Islands and are one of the world’s most endangered pinnipeds.  Only about 1,100 Hawaiian monk seals remain, and their population is declining at 4.5% each year. Threats to Hawaiian monk seals include prey limitation, shark predation, entanglement in marine debris, human interaction, climate change, adult male aggression, toxins and infectious disease.

Conservation Medicine Intern, Michelle Barbieri, just returned from a three week voyage in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, where she provided veterinary care for two weaned pups that were translocated by ship from French Frigate Shoals to Laysan Island, where they have a better chance of survival.  RSVP to Members-Only Night to hear about the journey of these two seals and learn more about conservation medicine in Hawaiian monk seals.
