    A page from the “Hawaiian Monk Seal 2018: A Celebration of Hawaiian Monk Seal Conservation, Protection, and Awareness” calendar.

The winners of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s inaugural Hawaiian monk seal photo contest are featured in a calendar that is free to download and print.

The “Hawaiian Monk Seal 2018: A Celebration of Hawaiian Monk Seal Conservation, Protection, and Awareness” calendar is available as an 11-by-17-inch tabloid in PDF format.

It features more than a dozen of the winning photos from last year, selected by the number of likes after being posted on NOAA Fisheries’ Facebook page, in various categories, including “Moms and Pups,” “Monk Seals in their Natural Settings” and “Monument Insight.” Photographers’ names are listed with each winning calendar page feature.

The calendar also includes interesting tidbits and facts, such as that monk seal pups are ready to swim within days of being born. Kaimana, or RJ58, the female monk seal pup who attracted crowds of admirers after being born at Kaimana Beach in Waikiki last summer, is featured snoozing in the sand with her mom, Rocky, on the June page.

At the bottom of every calendar page is the NOAA hotline to report seal sightings and seals in trouble, 888-256-9840.
