Episode 3: Kai Hohonu (Deeper Waters)
Dr. Stacie Robinson, a Research Ecologist with NOAAʻs Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program, discusses the current status of the Hawaiian Monk Seal and what we can do to protect them!
Episode 2: Kai Kū (Medium Waters)
Learn about the habitat where the ʻĪliokai (Hawaiian Monk Seal) lives and what they eat.
Episode 1: Kai Pāpaʻu (Shallow Waters)
Beginning with the Kumulipo, we learn that the Hawaiian Monk Seal is an important part of our ecosystem here in Hawaii.
Gray Seals: Sentinels of Our Shared Marine Habitat
Thanks to the Marine Mammal Protection Act and other wildlife laws, gray seals are recolonizing their historic habitat. Researchers are studying their recovery on the North Atlantic coast–and finding insights into the health of the marine ecosystem.
Interagency Cooperation Under the Endangered Species Act
NOAA Fisheries works with other federal agencies to protect and conserve endangered and threatened species and their habitats.
Decoding the Mystery of Turtle Genomes
Using samples from NOAA Fisheries’ tissue library, scientists have sequenced the complete genomes of leatherback and green sea turtles revealing differences in the two species that could help us understand their risks to climate change.
Tagging Leatherback Turtles
Scientists tag leatherback sea turtles to learn where they are and how they use the water so we can better protect them from bycatch and other threats.
Climate Change & Marine Animals: A Conservation Challenge
Climate-driven changes such as higher ocean temperatures and extreme weather events are affecting the health of marine animals—and their ability to survive. Learn how our scientists are using the best available science to conserve these species
Using Tags to Understand North Atlantic Right Whales
Fisheries and our partners put tags on North Atlantic right whales to learn about an individual’s movement and behavior. This video captured by a tag gives a little insight into what it is like being a North Atlantic right whale.
Reintroductions: A Lifeline for Salmon in California’s Central Valley
Dams with no fish passage have trapped salmon on the floor of California's Central Valley. To avoid extinction as our planet warms, reintroductions to their historical high-elevation habitat may be the answer to save these endangered fish.
How NOAA Prepares for Large Whale Entanglements in Hawaiʻi
Every year, NOAA Fisheries and partners go through rigorous and comprehensive large whale disentanglement training in Hawaiʻi. This ensures they're familiar with the gear, processes, and animals, and have the muscle memory to help whales in need.
