Hawaiian Monk Seal

by Douglas Hoffman on April 21, 2012

One of the great things about doing a workshop at the beach in Maui, is the local residents that come by to bask in the sun.  Take this Hawaiian Monk Seal for example, its enjoying some quality “Maui Time”.   These  animals are very rare and on the endangered species list.  Just to see one is a gift of Aloha.

If you should happen to come across one enjoy the view, but please do not approach within 100 feet. As a protected species you could get fined if caught.  See more hawaiian marine life photography here
