Ke Kai Ola: Saving the Hawaiian Monk Seal

Ke Kai Ola (“The Healing Sea”) is a state-of-the-art hospital dedicated to rehabilitating injured, ill, and orphaned Hawaiian monk seals and returning them healthy to their ocean home. The hospital, which opened in Kailua-Kona in 2014, is a “pu’uhonua,” a place of safety and peace for the seals. And a place where children and youth will learn to take care for this beautiful marine mammal. Working together to promote monk seal conservation will ensure the future of the Hawaiian monk seal.  Ke Kai Ola is a program of The Marine Mammal Center, a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to expand knowledge about marine mammals-their health and that of their ocean environment-and inspire their global conservation.
