Input sought on seal program
Input sought on monk seal program
NOAA Fisheries is holding a series of community meetings seeking community input on proposed Hawaiian monk seal recovery actions.
Specifically, it seeks information on potential adverse effects to historical and cultural sites that may result from implementation of the Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for Hawaiian Monk Seal Recovery.
Examples of the proposed actions include capture, veterinary treatment, transportation and release of monk seals on shorelines throughout the Hawaiian archipelago. Input from community meetings around the State will be incorporated into a revised Cultural Impact Assessment. The draft plan is available for review at: http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/permits/eis/hawaiianmonkseal.htm.
A Hilo meeting will be held at Hilo High School on Nov. 27 from 6-8 p.m. A Kona meeting will be held at Kealakehe Elementary School on Nov. 2012, from 6-8 p.m. Please contact Paul Cleghorn at 808.263.4800 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
