Hawaiian priest seals are endangered, though “Rocky” is doing her best to save her species.

OK, a charge folks know her as RH58, though according to a Associated Press, she’s picked adult a nickname Rocky.

She gave birth to a puppy late Wednesday or early Thursday on a Waikiki beach — to a pleasure of tourists who watched from behind ropes, kept divided from a small family by volunteers.

Hawaiian priest seals can live to be 25 to 30 years old, says a National Wildlife Federation. Rocky is believed to be 17 years old, and this is not her initial pup. She typically gives birth in Kauai, where she was born, and it’s not famous because she went for a traveller beach knowledge this time.

Angela Amlin, coordinator for a Hawaiian Monk Seal Recovery Program, tells a AP that pups routinely helper for 5 to 7 weeks, and that a mom will be really protecting during that time.

As darling as a steer of a small family is, sign researchers titillate everybody to stay 150 feet divided so as not to worry them.
