Honu releases slated Friday
Since 1989, Mauna Lani has received juvenile Hawaiian green sea turtles from Oahu’s Sea Life Park, and raised them in the saltwater ponds of the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel. The honu are cared for until they grow to a size and weight that are deemed appropriate for release into the wild. This release occurs every Fourth of July at the ocean’s edge fronting the hotel.
At 10:30 a.m. Friday, the honu will be gathered and paraded to the beach for their release. A welcome ceremony will kick off the event followed by the release. This annual celebration honors the honu and helps educate the public about the Hawaiian green sea turtle. Families are invited to join the celebration.
