Baby Monk Seal Kaimana removed from Kaimana Beach Saturday morning

Posted August 15

— If you're looking to find Baby Monk Seal Kaimana, at Kaimana Beach, you're out of luck.

Check out this Video from Civil Beat's live camera, of Kaimana being removed from the beach at around 8am Saturday morning by NOAA officials.

The pup has been transported to an undisclosed location; so as not to be harassed by people.

That's to ensure she remains a wild animal - and does not interact with humans.

Civil Beat video showed Kaimana alone on the beach Friday.

This MAY indicate the pup's mom, Rocky, has weaned her pup.

Rocky's previous nursing periods ranged between 39 and 42 days.
