Turtle Tagging

The beaches here at Hualālai Resort are basking grounds for the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle (Chelonia mydas). The multitude of Green Sea turtles that thrive here enjoy eating the limu (seaweed) off the rocks and resting on the sand or the rocks to warm their bodies in the Kona sun. The National Marine Fisheries turtle scientist, George Balazs, in conjunction with Hawai`i Prepatory Academy, has an ongoing turtle tagging program here at Hualālai Resort. By allowing the group access to this section of the coastline, vital information on Hualālai Resort’s Green Sea Turtle population can be generated.
