12/31/2014 Happy New Year

aloha good people!

I pulled these photos off of Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program.... I thought we would be happy to hear Benny is recovering and they'll fill us in with the details sometime tomorrow.... they worked late into the evening..... BIG MAHALOS!!!   Dr. Greg, Dr. Miles and Dr. Michelle and the entire NOAA Team.   These photos are under NOAA permit 932-1905

that's a huge hook!!!

Thanks to each and every one of you incredible NOAA guys, Thanks for trying so hard to save our Awesome Hawaiian Monk Seal...Benny.

NO words can say how grateful...YOU ARE THERE.

Happy new year to all...

And You the hell did you swallow all of THAT crap? Were you THAT HUNGRY???

Oh Benny...keep the fight going...We love you ...We love you.

Hope to find you again, WITHOUT A FISH HOOK!!!

Well Day one begins....Jan 1 2015.

It looks like Benny interrupted some VIP docs vacations with this must have fish. Thank you all for coming home and taking care of the Benz. Thanks to so many volunteers for making this rescue possible. Thank you to all the heavy lifters that were able to catch Benny. He weighs 352 lbs. I'm sure it felt like more.

That's not a hook, it's a freaking harpoon!

Thank you:

Kimo, for spotting the line in Benny's mouth;

The Billands, for locating Benny on Tuesday;

Capture team, for safely corralling the big boy;

NOAA team, for extracting all that gunk out of him.

You all saved Benny's life.

Mahalo nui loa!
