In a sense, Kauai Pup 2 (or KP2) was lucky to be an endangered species. If he hadn't been a Hawaiian monk seal, this frail pup probably would have been allowed to die after being attacked by ocean predator and abandoned by his mother. Instead, he was protected and watched, shipped nearly half way across the Pacific to receive the life-saving help he needed. Told by an experienced California marine biologist, The Odyssey of KP2 follows this playful, boisterous, slippery creature as he establishes relationships with human that sometimes place him in danger. This is a story of one seal, but in a sense, it is the story of every animal facing extinction. Editor's recommendation.
