There is a seal on the beach. Is this normal? Is it ok?
Monk seals come ashore (“haul-out”) to rest. This is normal and they should not be disturbed. Please report monk seal sightings to NOAA Fisheries contact person (Maui- (808) 292-2372). Encourage others to keep their distance (50 yards/150 feet), stay quiet, and keep their dogs leashed and away from the seal (to avoid disease transmission and injury). Make sure to always pass outside barricades, not between the seal and shoreline, and stay low to the ground avoiding the head.
