Thank you to everyone for participating in the contest and submitting such creative names for the Hawaiian Monk Seal. This year our mascot’s name is Ola! (Pronounced oh-lah) Ola is named after Ke Kai Ola, which translates to “the healing sea” and is the name of the only hospital in Hawaii dedicated to helping the critically endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal. Ke Kai Ola is operated by the Marine Mammal Center.
Please visit the Marine Mammal Center’s website to learn more about the Hawaiian Monk Seal and how to take action.

Congratulations to Hailey P, a Daisy from troop 1378 on winning the Giant Stuffed Seal! Hailey said she learned a lot about the Hawaiian Monk Seal and how they are endangered. Her advice to take action is that we all do not put trash in the ocean, recycle and to contact the hospital Ke Kai Ola if you see a Hawaiian Monk Seal that needs help. Great advice Hailey!
