Another sunset shift at the beach as Honu Guardian yesterday. I mentioned in a previous post that the volunteers are there to keep people from harassing the turtles. Well, we really do more than that. There's a large element of education as well. People have all sorts of questions about the turtles, and the volunteers are there to answer those questions, hopefully, or direct the person to where they can get the answer. So in addition to being on the beach at a beautiful time of day, there's a lot of interaction with the people who visit the beach.
Fact: these Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles do not mate or lay their eggs here on the beach on Oahu.
Fact: the turtles can stay submerged for between 4-5 hours before surfacing for air.
Just a sunset shot, and one of the surf.
I think I just might be in another part of the island in the next few days, and maybe I'll get some images other than turtles worth posting.
