The Hawaiian Monk Seals live on the sandy beach and coastal waters around the Hawaiian Islands. With few enemies, the islands were perfect for the Hawaiian Monk Seals to raise their kids. It was like a paradise. But when many people moved onto the islands, things started to change little by little. The Hawaiian Monk Seals became the target of hunters in the 19th century and a military base was built on the sandy beach in the 20th century. They now have troubles finding a place to raise their kids.
Have people caused the Hawaiian Monk Seal to stop raising their kids?!
The Hawaiian Monk Seal has become wary of human after living in the islands for years. With human present nearby, Hawaiian Monk Seal mothers will immediately stop feeding their kids and look for human approaching them. Now the sandy beach is protected for the Hawaiian Monk Seal to raise its kids, but the number of the Hawaiian Monk Seals is still low. Now they are facing new crises, like being caught in fishing nets or attacked by sharks.
