OUR MASCOT, THE GREEN SEA TURTLE (HONU)

Sea turtles have roamed Earth’s oceans for the last 100 million years and are the only herbivores among the various sea turtle species. These humble creatures are a key component to our ocean’s ecosystem. In ancient Hawaiʻi, some revered the turtles as guardian spirits (ʻaumakua) that watched over family members to keep them safe.
