The local islanders see KP2 as an honored member of their community, but government agents and scientists must consider the important role he could play in gathering knowledge and data about this critically endangered and rare species. Only 1,100 Hawaiian monk seals survive in the wild; if their decline continues without intervention, they face certain extinction within fifty years. In a controversial decision, environmental officials send KP2 to Williams's marine mammal lab in Santa Cruz, California, where she and her team monitor his failing eyesight and gather crucial data that could help save KP2's species.
But while this young seal is the subject of a complex environmental struggle and intense media scrutiny, KP2 is also a boisterous and affectionate animal who changes the lives of the humans who know and care for him-especially that of Williams. Even as she unravels the secret biology of monk seals by studying his behavior and training him, Williams finds a kindred spirit in his loving nature and resilient strength. Their story captures the universal bond between humans and animals and emphasizes the ways we help and rely upon one another. The health of the world's oceans and the survival of people and creatures alike depend on this ancient connection.
The Odyssey of KP2 is an inside look at the life of a scientist and the role that her research plays in the development of conservation efforts, bringing our contemporary environmental landscape to life. It is also the heartwarming portrait of a Hawaiian monk seal whose unforgettable personality never falters, even as his fate hangs in the balance.
Her goal is that this book would exalt God and help others work out their own soul salvation; crucifying flesh and putting on the whole spiritual man. This is a family book with entries for children by children.
Something missing, something broken. Spiritually frustrated, sexually frustrated, busted and disgusted. Searching for love and intimacy in all the wrong places and in all the wrong people.
Can someone explain to me, what love really is? Love conquers all fears...fear of growing old, fear of being left alone, fear of not experiencing true love. How can we identify with our self, without loving our self in someone else or something else? Whether it is sex, money, shopping, food and vacations, etc...
Frequently we get the teaching putting on the whole Armor of God but seldom do we ever hear how to crucify the flesh when one is broken-hearted and frustrated in every way possible.
This book attempts to address plots of the devil while uncovering what true love is and the importance of having an intimate relationship with God.
