Monk Seal Mystery - Northwest Hawaiian Islands



Crittercam reveals crucial evidence that could solve the Northwest Hawaiian Islands mysterious monk seal deaths — the only endangered marine mammals found entirely within the United States. While most adults are healthy, eight out of ten Hawaiian monk seal pups are dying before age two.

With the help of three juvenile seals, Wild Chronicles follows the Crittercam crew collects evidence of natural and man-made dangers in the marine environment and discovers a key feeding ground in a deep sea plain once thought to be a wasteland — evidence that will play a critical role in saving the monk seal from extinction.
