The National Marine Fisheries Service is proposing to implement specific 
management actions and administer the associated research and 
enhancement program for Hawaiian monk seals in the Hawaiian Islands. In 
accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), we have 
prepared this Draft PEIS to evaluate reasonable alternatives, potential 
impacts, and propose mitigation for this action.

The Notice of Availability (NOA) for this Draft PEIS was published in 
the Federal Register on August 19, 2011. A link to the NOA can be found 
on the project website at: 
http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/permits/eis/hawaiianmonkseal.htm. 

If you would like to be added to a mailing list and receive project 
updates and newsletters, please send an email to: monkseal at noaa.gov
