Summary
When a two-day-old Hawaiian monk seal pup is found abandoned on a Kauai beach, officials decide that as a newborn member of the most endangered marine mammal species in U.S. waters, Kauai Pup 2 is too precious to lose. The Odyssey of KP2 is an inside look at the life of a scientist, the role of her research, and a Hawaiian monk seal whose unforgettable personality never falters, even as his fate hangs in the balance
