Maui Greens

May, 2006

Throughout the month we have been swimming with and filming Green Sea Turtles. It is this time of the year that adult females will start to crawl onto Maui beaches to dig egg chambers and deposit eggs. New and full moons are the time to watch, usually early in the morning. Walking Maui beaches in the pre-dawn hours will reveal the tell-tale turtle tracks where the female has crawled. PLEASE report any crawls you might encounter here so that we might be able to monitor and protect these sites. MAHALO!
