Hawaiian Monk Sea Ash Scattering
Today Kona Sea Adventures took a break from fishing the Kona coast to scatter the ashes of a Hawaiian monk seal pup. Hawaiian monk seals are among the rarest marine mammals on the planet. Waimanu, an adult female monk seal who frequents the Kona coast, lost her pup Elua last year. Kona Sea Adventures had the privilege laying Ulua to rest today in Ho'ona Bay, an area where Waimanu is often spotted. Thanks to The Marine Mammal Center, Ke Kai Ola, for bestowing this honor upon Kona Sea Adventures.
