Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle

Laniakea beach or Lani’s is also referred to as “Turtle beach” because this natural sanctuary attracts so many of the endangered Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle or “Honu”.

 

Since the year 2000 the turtles have been basking on the beach enjoying the warm sun rays, the turtles most likely come here because of the abundance of limu (seaweed) growing on the rocks which they feed on.
