Honu (Hawaiian Green Turtles)

Honu are Hawaiian green turtles, and are a source of great joy for seasoned ocean lovers and newcomers alike.  For the ancient Hawaiians, they symbolised the navigator and mankind’s eternal connection to the land and the sea. Some legends talk about how honu guided the Polynesians to Hawaii. Others talk of a honu and honu’ea (the similarly threatened hawksbill turtle) as magical beings and protectors, and their daughter Kauila as the protector of children.

These zen creatures have been swimming the sea for 150- 200 million years, but only when humans arrived did they become endangered.  By the 70’s, they were so over-hunted they became critically endangered; by 1978 Hawaii state laws had been instituted to protect them, and populations are only now making a come-back – although they are still threatened by fishing and pollution. ​Read more in our blog post.
