`Ilioholoikauaua, the Hawaiian monk seal, is one of the most endangered marine mammals on earth. Today, dwindling numbers of monk seals forage in shallow nearshore and deep water habitat and haul out on beaches throughout the Hawaiian Islands, from the remote Kure Atoll to the west-facing beaches of the Big Island. Within the next five years, its population is expected to plummet below 1,000 individuals, a key benchmark on the path to extinction.

Recovery is possible. What is needed is adequate protection of monk seal habitat and acommitment to fully fund its recovery plan. But without our strong, immediate action, the Hawaiian monk seal -- and our cultural, spiritual, and historical connections to it -- will be lost forever.

We call on the state and federal governments to give greater priority to saving this rare and important species from extinction by limiting harmful human activity in the fragile Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, giving sufficient funding for the Hawaiian Monk Seal Recovery Plan, and protecting adequate critical habitat in the Main and Northwestern Hawaiian Islands.
