On December 15, 2011 the Waik?k? Aquarium welcomed H?‘ailona, the newest resident Hawaiian monk seal. Found on the Island of Kaua‘i more than 3-years ago after he was abandoned by his mother, his journey has led him to a new home here at the Waik?k? Aquarium. More information about H?‘ailona and Hawaiian monk seals are available at this site including live video footage, a marine profile of the Hawaiian monk seals at the Waik?k? Aquarium, FAQs about the Hawaiian Monk Seal "H?‘ailona", and H?‘ailona's Journal.
