Follows are embeded video of Various Monk Seals observed in Makena State
Park. My suggestion is scroll down and read the discriptions. Some shorts
have more action than others. You may want to see shots of the seal going
in the water or coming out. A lot of time a seal just takes a nap. Videos
are grouped by date of the hauling out.

Monk Seal haul out on January 1, 2008
Seal is on the North end of Big Beach at the base of the rocks and entrance
to the path over to Little Beach. She hauled out about 9:30 am and returned
to the water about 1:00 pm. This is a female that has been named Surfer
girl by Dr. Leisure.
Monk Seal 1 January 1, 2008 sighting. View from the rocks above the
Monk Seal and includes a scan of the beach where 1,600 people are using
the beach. That is comparable to the entire population of Monk Seals that
exist being on the same beach.
Monk Seal 2 January 1, 2008 sighting. A view of the seal from the entrance
to Little Beach trail. A view of a boat off shore taking a look.Interesting
comments by a freind that thinks the Monk Seal is dead.
Monk Seal 3 Moving about on the sand trying to get comfortable. Interesting
study on how the Monk Seal moves about essentially not using its flippers
but relying on the flexibility of its body and moving like a giant inch
worm. Another Dr Leisure favorite.
Monk Seal 4 Moves up the beach toward the camera not unlike it was coming
Monk Seal 5 Shot from above the seal on the rocks. View of other people
on the rocks and a view of the beach.
Monk Seal 6 no lifeguards. View from above with a voice over commentary
on the fact that there are still no life guards even though funding was
approved July 1, 2007.
monk seal 7 splash A close up of a sleeping Monk Seal that gets rudely
awaken by the surf. Another Dr. Leisure favorite.
