Baby Honu (Hawaiian Green Turtles)
Baby honu are hatched from eggs laid by the mother on land. Sometimes the mother will swim hundreds of miles to return to her beach of birth in order to lay her eggs. Once out of their shells, the little honu are in danger until they grow bigger. If they make it to the water, they begin a treacherous pelagic life on the open sea until they are big enough to return to the reef. Out of thousands of eggs, very few turtles make it back to the reef. Once critically endangered, they’ve been protected in Hawaii since the late 70’s. Populations are only now making a come-back – although they are still threatened by fishing and pollution. Read more in our blog post.
