From June 16-23, 2014, scientists conducted research in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI) using a Puma Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) deployed from NOAA Ship Hiʻialakai. Researchers from NOAA and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service used the system to perform surveys of monk seals, sea turtles, sea birds and vegetation and to look for marine debris in Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument.
