When a two day-old Hawaiian monk seal pup is attacked and abandoned by his mother on a beach in Kauai, environmental officials must decide if they should save the newborn animal or allow nature to take its course. But as a member of the most endangered marine mammal species in U.S. waters, Kauai Pup 2, or KP2, is too precious to lose, and he embarks on an odyssey

We need to protect these amazing animals. If we don't, we will have another extinction on our hands. We have lost a lot of amazing species due to extinction. Like the Bald Ibis, Tasmanian Tiger, Lesser Bilby, and Caribbean Monk Seal. These and a million other species are all extinct thanks to us. If we don't act now, Hawaiian Monk Seals and several others species will be in grave danger.

An exceptional read this true story reads like fiction as the fate of the creature from natural predators and federal bureaucracy almost spins from one precipice to another. I very highly recommend this book and Professor William's other biographical episode Hunter's Breath.

Terrific. You ot only learn about endangered animals, but you become engaged with this particular seal, KP2. I appreciated the deals of care and training. The emotional connection with an animal which you are trying to preserve combined with the limits set by animal science in not disturbing the animal are all laid out. An emotional read.

A grey she-cat padded in. She purred when she saw the scene. "Want some more help teaching the kittypet?"
