Dear fellow MARMAMers and colleagues,

I am a graduate student at Oregon State University looking to gather  
information and acoustic samples of Hawaiian Monk seal vocalizations  
underwater.  If you have, or know of anyone with underwater recordings  
of Hawaiian Monk seals (whether directly or indirectly in the  
background), previous or ongoing studies/research, or even unpublished  
observations such as from a rehab facility or any time spent  
underwater; could you please forward me any information or names as to  
whom I could contact for further information.

I am trying to compile sufficient evidence to determine the  
feasibility of using passive aoustic monitoring on Hawaiian Monk seal  
populations.  However, the availability and/or accessilibity of  
existing recordings or studies containing or pretaining to underwater  
monk seal vocalizations is minimal.

If anyone has information or could help in any way, please contact me  
at shindelm at onid.orst.edu.

Thank you very much for your time and assistance.

Marci Shindel
