Engage in NOAA’s management of living marine resources through conservation and the promotion of healthy ecosystems.
Hawaiian green sea turtles, known as "honu" in the Hawaiian language, will come to Laniakea Beach on the north shore of Oahu to feed on abundant "limu" or green algae and to bask ashore. Unfortunately, some beachgoers are not respectful to the honu by handling or feeding them.
The Pacific Island Regional Office of NOAA Fisheries is seeking volunteers, generally serving three hours per week, to protect the honu and educate residents and visitors on how to respectfully view these magnificent creatures.
