We have an update on Kaimana, the first Hawaiian monk seal pup born at Waikiki Beach! Soon after weaning, scientists relocated her to a secluded beach to keep her safe. Since September, Kaimana has been increasing the area she explores and has been swimming farther and farther into deeper waters, often reaching several miles offshore. These are all good signs that Kaimana is growing and developing normal seal-foraging habits.
We’ve recently gotten news that Kaimana has been seen investigating surfers at some popular spots. While a little curiosity is not concerning, it is important to never engage with any young monk seal because those that get used to socializing with humans can become dangerous when they get bigger. If ever approached by a seal in the water, please do not engage it. Leave the seal and report the interaction to our hotline. Be sure to report monk seal sightings to: 1-888-256-9840.

🦈The Real Jaws: Believe it or not, the Hippo kills more humans per year than sharks or any another animal (excluding Mosquitos). The Hippo will charge when threatened and can attack in a variety ways including jaw crushing and mauling (sounds fun 😨). This video shows the effortless strength of the hippo, squashing a watermelon like a grape. While the Hippo is an occasional killer, it is more often than not the victim. Though Hippo populations are thriving, the animals are still targeted by poachers and game hunters and in increasing numbers. Have you ever seen a hippo in person? (They are awesome)
