  • Alternative Title:
    Hawaiian Monk seal, Neomonachus schauinslandi ; Species in the spotlight ; Hawaiian monk seal 5-year action plan ;
  • Description:
    "The Hawaiian monk seal is one of NMFS' eight priority species because there are only about 1,100 Hawaiian monk seals left in the world, and they have been in a continuous decline since at least the 1950's (Carretta et al. 2014). The Hawaiian monk seal is the second-most endangered pinniped in the world and the last surviving species in its genus. Hawaiian monk seals occur only in the Hawaiian Islands Archipelago, which stretches 1,500 miles from Hawaii Island to Kure Atoll (Figure 1). Hawaiian monk seals are the only marine mammal species whose recovery and management falls entirely under the jurisdiction of the United States"--page 2, paragraph 1.
