Hawaiian monk seal pup ‘Ākulikuli was found skinny, malnourished and all alone. As a member of one of the most endangered species, it was crucial that ‘Ākulikuli get the medical care he needed to survive.

Once at our hospital ‘Ākulikuli was given nutritious fish-mash smoothies until he was strong enough to eat whole fish. Over time, this young pup was given special enrichment activities to help him develop the natural behaviors and skills he would need to have the best chance at life in the wild. After a few months of care ‘Ākulikuli was released back to his ocean home.
