The Hawaiian monk seal is the most endangered seal in the U.S. and
second most endangered seal species in the world. Human disturbance is
the primary reason for this animal’s decline. If a human gets too close
to a mother and her pup, the female seal will often abandon her
offspring and go out to sea. Naturally, the pup will not survive. Laws
now forbid human contact within 100 yards of a monk seal in an effort to
prevent abandonment from occurring. Monk seals also get tangled in
discarded fishing nets and other trash in the ocean. Over fishing and
lack of survival at their breeding beaches (French Frigate Shoals) have
caused a significant decline in the numbers of these beautiful seals.
