11/1/2015 DB's Dailies: Kainoa@Aukai@Rabbit Island, Kaiwi@China Walls, RW02@Mokuleia, plus RW34&U/M, Big Island

At 0739 I found Kainoa (RN04) new arrived, fronting 1BS on Rabbit Island. He would remain there the rest of the day.

 Also at 0739 I found Aukai (RL12) fronting 3BS on RI. She too would remain the rest of the day. 4

Mahalos to M&M (Marilyn & Melanie) for making the hunt through the SE quadrant. Melanie called at 1300 reporting Kaiwi (RK96) at China Walls.

 Colleen Heyer called from the Big Island at 1429. Vacation or no, ya’ can’t keep a good Monk Seal girl down. She called with a report and shots of a probably pregnant female in the company of a smaller male, at Keokea Beach Park, Hawi, BI. Forwarded the shots to Tracy for some profession help on an ID. Tracy called at 1820 to advise that the pregnant female is RW34. She is expected to pup any second now. Tracy checked in again at 1849 to advise that Big Island personnel were advised. They had apparently gotten word of RW34 and a small U/M at that location. They will be going out tomorrow to assess the situation.

RW02 has been going up & down and all around for the past 5 days due to his molting behavior.
No worries with the foot prints, beachgoers, fishermen and all others have been extremely respectful. Coexistence is the word around here.
Daily reports have been sent in
