A one-hour film on Hawaiian monk seals will be premiering on PBS
starting Wednesday, November 1, 2006 in most areas. Please check your local
PBS listings for airdates.

This natural history film documents efforts to understand monk seal
foraging ecology in hope of finding remedies for the decline of the
Hawaiian monk seal in recent decades. It shows how the use of innovative
technology such as Crittercam, 'electric rocks' and research submarines
have allowed scientists to discover critical aspects of foraging and
habitat use that have in turn informed the process of establishing
protections for the Hawaiian monk seal and their unique habitat, the
Nothwestern Hawaiian Islands.
