Honolulu – The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), along with the Conservation Council for Hawaii, the Center for Biological Diversity and the Monk Seal Foundation are now rewarding $10,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the illegal killing of a baby monk seal in Anahola, Kauai on November 30, 2014. That’s double the initial reward offered by HSUS after the killing was announced Tuesday.
William J. Aila, Jr. Chairperson of the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) said, “The support these organizations are providing to help identify, arrest and convict the individual(s) responsible for this heinous act, is invaluable in raising public awareness and generating information about this killing and previous ones.”
The four organizations are also offering $10,000 rewards for information that leads to arrest and conviction in each of four previous illegal monk seal deaths in 2011 and 2012.”
