08/03/2017 Monk Seal Dailies:

Today's Dailies are brought to you by Team Billand, Posse Pals, Tammy T, Gayle, and Tony.  Thank you all for your continued support.

Team Billand spent the first part of the morning looking for Pohaku and came up empty until they hit Nimitz Beach at 7:45 am. Sure enough there was Pohaku with Benny right by her side.  Team Billand called the hotline right away and gave them detail directions to the site. While they waited for HMAR volunteer to arrive they did outreach and made a informational sign. Team Billand departed at 9:40 when HMAR arrived.

Team Billand found RL42 at a new spot at Makua Cliffs, she was there alone resting peacefully.

A big surprise at Kahe Team Billand saw an animal who was larger than Ka'ale, after carefully looking they were able to read the tags N/14/N15.... It was a Molokai Boy!  It's been a while since he's been sighted on Oahu! He is big and green!

After ID'ing RN14 they noticed Ka'ale to the right tucked in the corner. Two seals one area, separate locations. 

Posse pal Tammy (half of Team T&D) was out at Ka'ena Point. She had a busy day with a whole cast of characters. She found Luana at Hidden Beach, Ka'ena at his pool, RIP at the main pool.... but the big surprise was a new visitor from Kauai bleach mark V18, tagged V26/27.  If anyone has more info on this critter please feel free to share.  Always fun to have a new critter.

Gayle found Right Spot at Kaupo Beach ( ya sure! I was out there yesterday..... and she shows up again today!)  

Tony sent a couple of photos of Kaiwi at the Outrigger and Rocky with Kaimana back on shoreline after their adventure to the Natatorium.
