A young Hawaiian monk seal was recuperating Thursday night after undergoing surgery.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration officials say the procedure was needed to remove a severely infected eye.
The female seal got a lift from the Coast Guard as she was transported to Oahu from Niihau.
The surgery was done at the Honolulu Zoo, but the seal is recovering at NOAA's new facility on Ford Island.
