  • Recent Monk Seal Hooking Underscores Need for Community Cooperation | Na Mea Hulu
    in with a hook in her cheek according to the National Marine Fisheries Service We are thrilled to see that this seal has recovered from her injuries and is being released back into the wild today We feel this incident is an opportunity to enhance awareness about our state marine mammal and take proactive steps to improve our community s capacity to respond responsibly to interactions between humans and seals Marine Conservation Institute has launched a study to document what is currently known about interactions with seals identify and analyze public concerns about the issue economic legal and environmental and develop creative solutions to reduce harm to seals and minimize negative impacts on humans As our seal population in the main islands grows due to natural increase there will be more unintentional hookings of seals by recreational fishermen who are minding their own business Fisherman and other ocean users can be valuable partners in this effort as they are eyes on the water who can report entanglements hooking incidents and other interactions immediately to reduce Hawaiian monk seal fatalities The fate of this very rare and endangered seal is in our hands Community cooperation is essential if we are going to succeed in keeping it a part of Hawaii s ecology for all to enjoy About Marine Conservation Institute Marine Conservation Institute is a U S nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting marine ecosystems We work with scientists politicians government officials and other organizations in the United States and around the world to fashion solutions to problems affecting marine ecosystems which are long lasting and compatible with sustainable ocean use Honua Consulting represents Marine Conservation Institute in Hawai i Comments are closed Latest News Cuts Threaten Future of Critically Endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal HELP NEEDED FROM PUBLIC TO LOCATE DISTRESSED MONK

  • Coalition of the concerned forms to save monk seals | Na Mea Hulu
    proposing last June to expand the Hawaiian monk seal critical habitat in the main islands A firestorm ensued with some Hawaii anglers voicing strong opposition to the proposal fearing fishing restrictions and bans on using beaches Untruths began circulating One outlandish rumor had it that monk seals are not native to the main islands Since then four adult seals have been found shot or bludgeoned to death two on Molokai two on Kauai The truth is that expanding monk seal critical habitat in the main islands neither limits public access to beaches nor adds new restrictions on fishing The designation helps the seals by protecting shorelines from hotels and highways and fishing grounds from offshore fish farms Having monk seal critical habitat in the main islands also means that Hawaii would receive federal funds to help the seals survival To counter these terrible killings concerned individuals have teamed up with more than a dozen local and national organizations to create a group voice The alliance calls itself Aloha Kana loa Coalition Kana loa being god of the ocean in ancient Hawaiian tradition The purpose of the coalition is to stop monk seal killings through education and to open dialogue with anglers about the importance of monk seals to the Hawaiian culture the state and the world The group created a public service video about the monk seal at www aloha kana loa coa li tion org The filmmakers convey Hawaiian culture at its finest and traditional fishing practices at their wisest The message of sharing and aloha for native species as well as for each other gives me hope One voice calling for a halt to the brutal killings of our state marine mammal won t likely make a difference but thousands together will If you have any information about

  • DLNR, NOAA ASK FOR FISHERMEN’S KOKUA IN REPORTING MONK SEAL HOOKING OR ENTANGLEMENTS | Na Mea Hulu
    Seals and Fishing Interactions Guidelines for Prevention Safety and Reporting that describe actions fishermen can take to avoid seal hookings and entanglement and to reduce fishing gear and bait loss The guidelines also stress the importance of reporting all fishing interactions The guidelines are available at the following link http www fpir noaa gov Library PRD Hawaiian 20monk 20seal HMS fishing guidelines FINAL PUBLIC pdf The toll free 24 7 reporting hotline for all fishing interactions and other marine mammal incidents is 1 888 256 9840 NOAA and DLNR urge all fishermen and other ocean users to write down this hotline and or save it in their mobile phones for timely use whenever a seal is hooked or entangled We want to encourage reporting as early as possible We feel we can develop win win solutions with the fishermen and their reporting is essential to achieving this said Jeff Walters Marine Mammal Branch Chief NOAA NMFS PIRO Timely reporting of monk seal fishing interactions is beneficial in at least two ways 1 First reporting an interaction as soon as possible can help save a seal s life or minimize seal injury In at least three previous cases real time reporting of seals that had ingested hooks resulted in successful treatment and release of the seal back to the wild These seals probably would have died without this intervention On numerous other occasions fishermen have provided timely reporting of less severe hooking and entanglements that were not immediately life threatening but could have become life threatening if not responded to These timely reports have allowed response network members to get out to the location in time to locate the seal and safely remove the gear 2 The second benefit to timely reporting is that it helps federal and state managers and researchers better understand how fishery interactions occur and thereby helps guide the development and testing of improved methods to prevent and mitigate interactions By reporting and documenting interactions fishermen can partner with NOAA and DLNR to find better non regulatory methods to effectively keep seals away from fishing gear and fishing areas while also allowing for monk seal conservation and recovery Of the three active hooking cases two seals required procedures to remove the hooks on May 10 2012 at the Honolulu Zoo One of these seals was airlifted from Kaua i to O ahu on May 9 2012 by the US Coast Guard The two seals are currently in guarded but stable condition at the Waikiki Aquarium A special team has been assembled to de hook and care for these seals including a veterinarian flown in from the Vancouver Aquarium who specializes in marine mammal anesthesia The third hooked seal last seen on May 9 2012 around O ahu has yet to be treated but NOAA and DLNR marine mammal response staff are tracking her and plan to capture and treat her as soon as possible This is the second hooking incident in the past two weeks for this
