Saving Turtles in Hawaii
Green sea turtles (called honu locally) are found in the nearshore waters of the Hawai'ian Islands. Predominantly nesting in the remote Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, green turtles can be found off Maui's shallow waters, and basking in large numbers on specific beaches on the island's popular north shore. Basking is a rare behavior in which green sea turtles crawl ashore for reasons other than nesting.
