9/2/2017 Monk Seal Dailies:

Today's Dailies are brought to you by Team Billand, Gayle, and the Ka'ena Point Trekkers (Lesley and Mrs. Whisperer and Gina too) .  Also I saw on social media today that PO4 is a weaner. The real question is when? From the post it sounded like it's been a couple of days.  

Sad that times have changed, there was a time when we watched waited and shared the news. For sure one of the greatest gifts DB brought to us, a wealth of knowledge, sharing his experiences so we all learned. We learned and we shared our experiences, we became a Monk Seal Ohana because we were all in it together.  I miss my mentor, I miss our talks, I miss his sharing and sense of humor.  I know I'm not alone. Okay back to our regularly scheduled post:

Both Lesley and Marilyn sent photos of their day, they hiked along with Gina W. to Ka'ena Point from the Mokuleia side. They looked for R330 Squinty who had been there the past two days. He was not there but they did find a recent wallow that contained some molted fur.

Thanks to a nice fisherman who alerted them of a seal at a small cove near Hidden Beach. The seal was ID'd as RK36 Kauai Kolohe by scar behind RFF, male belly and 4DJ tag. They spotted their next seal at 9:28am on the rocks in the middle of the main pool at Ka'ena Point. Ka'ena RO40 was ID'd by male belly, scar on forehead and applied N9 bleach on right shoulder and behind rear flipper.

Team Billand found Kekoa Alii RK72 at Maili today. It was there only find.

Gayle found Right Spot at Kaupo this morning, she departed at 10:00 am and did not return. Gayle also spotted three critters on Rabbit Island all U/U.
