What endangered species have you seen?
We got so lucky on the days that we spent at Poipu Beach in Kauai. The Hawaiian Monk Seal is high on the world's most endangered species list - and we saw more than one! Yes, that's right - on two different days we saw, not just one but, two monk seals just lounging on the sand. Since sightings are quite rare, we felt especially lucky!
