On Saturday, September 4, 2010, “Team Hawaiian Monk Seal” from The Marine Mammal Center will compete in the Maui Channel Swim to support the Center’s efforts to raise funds to build an urgently needed hospital for monk seals in Kona. The swimmers will join 52 teams and 20 solo swimmers from around the world in a daring crossing of the Au Au channel- from the beach at Lanai to Black Rock on the shores of Kaanapali. The channel is well known for swift currents as well as tiger sharks and Portuguese Man ‘O Wars. Dive in with the team as they race for 10 miles in the unpredictable world of this fragile species.

Currently, there are no medical facilities in Hawaii for Hawaiian monk seals. This means that monk seals that are sick and injured, including pups that are prematurely weaned by their mothers or are entangled in ocean trash, are not able to be saved. The population of Hawaiian monk seals is currently 1,100 and is declining at a rate of 4% annually. With population numbers like this, each and every monk seal counts and a hospital for monk seals will allow us to return some of these sick animals back to the ocean. For more information about the Center’s plans for the Hawaiian monk seal hospital, click here.

You can help by sponsoring Team Hawaiian Monk Seal – their goal is to raise at least $11,000!

Hotel Chains Open Their Doors to Dogs

By Phyllis DeGioia

Imagine that the following happens during your next vacation: You enter the lobby of a luxury hotel with your accompanying children, colleagues or friends, and your eyes wide open. Your companions gasp while you stare, jaw agape, at the finery and expensive furnishings. You’re so taken aback by the splendor that you almost drop your dog’s leash.

This scenario might not just be a daydream — especially the part about your dog. That’s because many hotels now cater to dog owners like you. Now you can stay at hotels ranging from luxury chains, where you can expect royal rover treatment, to reasonably priced hotels, which place more emphasis on functionality rather than flash. Read More…
