An endangered Hawaiian monk seal with its pup resting in the sand.

Description

An endangered Hawaiian monk seal with its pup resting in the sand. With current estimates only having 1200 Hawaiian monk seals left and only 150 known monk seals to visit the main Hawaiian islands it was a magical experience to see this mother and her pup relaxing in the sand. The Hawaiian monk seals face daily trials and tribulations and unfortunately this pair was attacked by a dog a few months after this moment was captured. Luckily they survived but it should always be a constant reminder to that the Hawaiian monk seal needs all the help they can get to ensure their ultimate survival.
