HONOLULU (KHON2) — Volunteers who have been keeping an eye on Hawaiian monk seal pup Lōli’i said he is thriving on Thursday, July 7.

They said he is doing what monk seals do best — sleeping and fishing.

Officials said Lōli’i’s condition and behaviors look good; He has been seen foraging and finding food for himself and doing all the typical behaviors a monk seal of his age should be doing.
