  • Translocation of Hawaiian monk seals from the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands to the Main Islands, Deferred | Na Mea Hulu
    not everyone agreed it would work But NMFS deserves credit for considering it as one measure to maintain the monk seal as part of Hawai i s ohana Translocations of individual seals within the main islands are allowed under the permit application and we support these as necessary to protect their important role in Hawai i s ecology and culture Moving seals within the MHI to appropriate locations where they can thrive will be an increasingly important tool as the population of monk seals continues to naturally increase in the main islands Frankly said Watson the Hawai i office of NMFS is in no position to finance an expensive translocation project right now because the agency s budget for the monk seal recovery program has been cut by NOAA s managers from around 5 5 million in 2010 to roughly 3 5 million in 2012 and further cuts may be in the offing NMFS Hawai i cannot even pay for things it should be doing now like mounting effective outreach and volunteer programs responding to the growing number of harmful human actions toward monk seals and financing its scientific research projects including its summer research camp in the NWHI The focus of the limited funds available needs to be on activities in Papahānaumokuākea and on managing the seal population currently in the main Hawaiian Islands If the people of Hawai i and across the United States want to see the monk seal properly managed and recovered she said they are going to have to ask their congressional delegation to intervene on the NOAA budget when it comes before the Congress this spring Watson noted that 30 of the seals seen alive today are alive because of interventions made by seal managers in Hawai i That s a terrific record achieved
