5/27/2017 In Addition: Meet PO2

Aloha Good People!

A friend of mine sent this photo from the Mokes today... All I have to say is this kid is porky!  Geesh I hope Mama Nani goes back to her secret spot soon.... maybe she's avoiding the King Tide...

Introducing PO2

5/27/2017 DB's Dailies:

At 0730 arriving at Makai Pier I found Sadie (RB12) & PO1(D#23) at the left end of the beach on Rabbit Island. Their feed and snoozin' breaks were filled with swim sessions. 1007 - 1055 and 1236-1238.

I got a Yesterday's News shot from posse member Mike (thanks Lesley) of a shot of Kaiwi (RK96) on the Kokee Flats.

Marilyn, Lesley & Ken were at the End of the World. The cast would turn out to be Squinty (R330) at BG's Pool (0938) and RIP (RR70) at the Runway(1036) at Ka'ena Point. On the way out they found Luana (RN58) at Hidden Beach.

Team Billand finds were be Ka'ale (RH32) at Maili, at 1000 and RW02 at Lahi Lahi at 1046.

I've heard nothing at all from the happening from Nani &PO2. Awaiting to check other findings from various sites.

5/26/2017 Breaking News: Exciting and Scary to Say the Least!

Aloha Good People;  I came across this Instagram posted several hours ago..... Appears Nani and her first pup are hanging out in one of the worst possible locations. NOAA is going to have their hands full this weekend for sure!  If you are around the area please help the volunteers and caretakers by keeping your distance and help them manage those who are not being respectful. LET's HOPE Nani finds a hidden spot for her safety and PO2.  (Then again a threatened Mama may not tolerate anyone bugging them).

malamamonkseal  1st time ever #Monkseal mom n pup at the #mokuluaislands! NOAA is asking people to be careful and give them as much space as possible. If you know and you go, please help by informing others and preventing crash landings into the seals! Pup is about two weeks old and they should be nursing for another three weeks. Mahalo!

5/26/2017 DB's Dailies:

At 0719 I found Sadie(RB12)&PO1(D#22) on the left rock flats, on Rabbit Island. The did their first water session at 0919, hauling out at 1008 to the sandy area at the left end of the beach. After a lengthy feed and snooze they would do another water session from 1107 until 1223. Yet another feed and snooze was called for.

Tracy confirmed officially this morning that Nani (RK60)&PO2 was found. According to Tracy it appears as though the pup is thought to be about 2-3 weeks old. I’m sure you’ll all be able to get a feel for where they are located, but I am not going to pursuit it as for now. There are amble sights on line with lots of info. I do not want to have a roll in any “management issues”as might be associated with the blog for today.

Team Billand had mentioned that RN14 had been at Paradise Cove but had departed. They were find RN14 again at Kahe Pt, at 1130.

At 0934 the Billands found a foraging animal at Campbell Industrial Park. Barbara was thinking a possible Pohaku, but awaiting photos.

At 1147 Team Billand found Ka’ale (RH32) at Maili.

RIP (RR70) was found by Barbara at the 20MIN mark on the west side KP trail.

At1333 her next find was Ka’ena (RO40) at the 30MIN mark.
