The Hawaiian Monk Seal

The Hawaiian Monk Seal is an endangered species because in the 19th century they were discovered and killed by the cruel human beings that roamed the planet of Earth.We killed them for food do we could eat, and by the end of the century they were endangered. There are only two remaining Monk Seal species, the Hawaiian Monk Seal and the Mediterranean Monk Seal, the Carribean Monk Seal is extinct. The Hawaiian Monk Seals habitats are on beaches on islands and on atolls,coral islands, any rise in the sea level can take there habitat away from them, therefore they must adapt. There is little sites of habitats for them to survive. There is limited amours of food for them, they get entangled in fishing gear,predation happens, global warming, and diseases also made the Hawaiian Monk Seal endangered. If they don't adapt to get food,to get untangled, and attack on predators all three species will soon be extinct.
