This is the cute Hawaiian monk seal calendar you didn't know you needed (until now)

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Absolutely adorable.

NOAA Fisheries released their 2018 Hawaiian Monk Seal calendar.

The special calendar features the winners of NOAA's inaugural Hawaiian monk seal photo contest held last year.

In the calendar are some of the top photos selected by NOAA officials and voted on by the community.

Photos of sleeping seals, seals defending their territory, and even seals caught among ocean debris can be found in the free calendar, downloadable for free here. 

The calendar is even pre-marked with the known birthdays of some of the seals. (Can it get any cuter than that?)

It's also educational. The calendar has facts about monk seals and interesting information about their natural history.

Take a look at the calendar below: 

The Hawaiian monk seal is a federally protected endangered species.

Seal sightings can be reported by calling 1-888-256-9840.
