The NOAA HMSRP , Facebook site:
as well as a piece of footage I found on Instagram (thank you good soul whoever you are), document the release.
Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming. I arrived at Makai Pier at 0855 and found a 25% molted Kekoa (RK72) left of 2BS on Rabbit Island.
At 0958 Kawena (RH36) hauled out fronting 1BS. Both would snooze away this rainy , windy day. My lanai office was no fun at all.
At 0927 Team Billand reported 3 foraging animals off Campbell Industrial Park. No ID was possible.
Barbara did the End of the World trek again today. On the way in she found Kerby (RW08) at the 30 Min mark, and at the point she reported Ka’ale (RH32) and Ka’ena (RO40).
Colleen advised that Kaiwi (RK96) had reportedly arrived at Outrigger Canoe Club around 0900 , per witnesses. Colleen confirmed the Kaiwi ID at 1130. Per Colleen, Kaiwi departed at 1853.
Diane Gabriel checked in to advise that her first look at Turtle Bay was a bust, but on her way back she found Holokai (RG40) at the Keiki Pool.
