Save Monk Seals


Hawaiian monks seals are disappearing. They face enormous threats that could cause their extinction within a generation (less than 50 years). But it is not too late! We have discovered that dedicated conservation efforts can change this trend. Over 20% of the remaining monk seal population is alive today due to scientists and volunteers working together. Join the community of concerned citizens and scientists from across the country who care about the future of this species. You CAN do what few have dared to attempt – SAVE AN ENDANGERED SPECIES!

Take action today by participating in the Save a Real Seal™ program, signing our petition to congress, writing to your government officials, using your unique talents to increase awareness, or making a donation to fund monk seal science.

This site is dedicated to making a difference in the race to save the monk seal by inspiring people like you to stand up and take action. As the only pinniped species (seal, sea lion, or walrus) that is found exclusively in the United States, the Hawaiian monk seal is America’s seal. But your seal is now the most endangered marine mammal in U.S. waters due to pollution, food limitations, shark attacks and environmental degradation.

The fate of the Hawaiian monk seal rests in your hands. Become a part of the national effort to save this species from extinction.
