ABOUT THE ART
November 2015's endangered species feature!
The critically endangered Hawaiian monk seal - Ilio Holo I Ka UaUa! ("dog that runs in rough water.") Our seal is accompanied by Hawaii's state fish humuhumunukunukuapua'a, (reef triggerfish) and two small yellow lauwiliwilinukunukuʻoiʻoi! (reef butterfly fish)
There are people working hard to save the Hawaiian monk seal. This is a wonderful thing because these seals are listed as a conservation reliant endangered species by the Endangered Species Act, meaning that the 1,100 individuals that remain in the wild today are entirely reliant on human intervention if they are to survive.
