The Back Story:

Honu - Hawaiian Sea Turtles  

Sea turtles have an extraordinary sense of time and location. They are highly sensitive to the Earth’s magnetic field and probably use it to navigate. They live up to 189 years. The fact that most species return to nest at the locations where they were born seems to indicate an imprint of that location’s magnetic features.

Sea turtles of all species are endangered.  They play a key role in two ecosystems that are critical to them as well as to humans —the oceans and beaches/dunes. If sea turtles were to become extinct, the negative impact on beaches and the oceans would be enormous.  Join us in celebrating these magnificent creatures, and help those organizations trying to save this heritage.
