The Honu, Green Sea Turtle, has become a symbol of Hawaii. They nest mostly in protected northern islands of Hawaii but snorklers will often encounter them along the Hawaiian reef searching out lunch or just out for a swim. On land, these adorable creatures look like your everyday sunbather. Plopped contently at the shoreline, not a care in the world, soaking up sun with eyes closed and fins stretched out. In the water, the Honu swim gracefully like an eagle soaring through the sky.
The Honu faces danger from the beginning of life, and now more than ever needs our help to conserve their breeding grounds protect them from our growing population. To help, check out the following website;
