I hope your Sunday was a good one. I received multiple photos showing RL42 going through her molt and unfortunately with a hook and lead dangling from her mouth. This was reported to NOAA early this morning.... Hopefully they'll be able to get to her in a safe place. Please note her current location on the rocks is not a good spot from them to approach her. Often times the hook will come out on it's own. Let's hope for that... and soon. It's fairly safe to say if your hiking out at Ka'ena Point and see her, please call it in with as much information as possible so the NOAA folks keep track of her progress.
In less dramatic news Ka'ale was reported looking green and healthy.
