This week community leaders on Molokai renewed the call to protect our endangered Hawaiian monk seal population. It followed the discovery of the death of yet another of endangered marine mammal on the Friendly Isle. Since 2009, officials say 8 seals have been killed. The most recent case involved a seal that was just a year old. Dr. Claire Simeome with the Marine Mammal Center gives an update on his progress to date.
