Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles
There are so many fantastic marine species in Hawaii, including the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, or Honu. Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles are listed as both a threatened and endangered species. It’s illegal to be closer than 10 feet away from a sea turtle, so make sure to keep your distance. Not only is it illegal, but it’s just wrong to bother or harass these beautiful creatures. It’s their home, and you are a guest, so try to keep that in mind. As long as you know the rules and respect the wildlife, you’ll have a great time viewing sea turtles on the Big Island!
