Green Turtle closeup

A Hawaiian green turtle lifts its head after resting on the sand at Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park. The park is one of many good places on the island to see turtles, either on the beach or foraging in the shallow waters there.

          Turtles are doing pretty well here. They’re protected, so don’t have human predators to worry about. I think tiger sharks are their biggest worry. They have many places to pull out and rest around the island. Some of these get a lot of human traffic but by and large people are pretty good around them.
