ABOUT Laniakea Beach - Turtle Beach Oahu  From Malama na Honu Website

Laniakea Beach Sea Turtles

Laniakea Beach Oahu - The Hawaiian green sea turtles (honu), a "Threatened Species," are making a comeback. Their protection and preservation, primarily through education in the spirit of Aloha, is the mission of Malama na Honu. Our efforts are focused on the North Shore of Oahu, near Haleiwa Town at Laniakea Beach (aka Turtle Beach Oahu). Honu are protected by The Endangered Species Act and in recent years have experienced a significant increase in their numbers. More than ever, it is necessary for the education of residents and visitors alike to treat them with respect. Honu Guardian volunteers are on the beach every day to offer educational outreach about the protected species. This helps avoid inadvertent harassment and assures the honu’s peaceful coexistence on our beaches. Malama na Honu  is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, established in the State of Hawaii, and has over 60 active volunteers who help carry out its educational mission.

YAH Says...

Laniakea Beach - Turtle Beach Oahu

Next to the Waikiki Aquarium, Laniakea Beach on Oahu's North Shore is your best guarantee for sea turtle spotting. However at Laniakea, the Honu is in its natural environment and almost inexplicably can be found daily sunning themselves on the golden white sands of this small strip of beach found between Haleiwa and Waimea Bay. While theories abound as to why the honu prefer this beach to any other on Oahu, much of the reason can be found in the form of the deep green seaweed - a favorite food of theirs - that collects on the tide washed shoreline. Sun, snacks, and relaxation. Laniakea Beach is the Turtle Bay Resort for sea turtles.

Due to a few too many visitors in the past seeking a "hands-on" experience, a local Sea Turtle Protection organization has been established on site where volunteers take turns at 4 hour shifts, placing a red rope in a radius around each beached turtle to ensure that onlookers stay just that. Unfortunately on the rare occasion when volunteers miss duty (extreme weather conditions, etc...), a few visitors devoid of common sense continue to overstep the boundaries between man and nature and ruin it for the rest of us, so please do stay vigilant (with words) if you should see such a behavior and alert Malama Na Honu next door to the beach. The organization is always on the look out for volunteers so if you have the time and you fit the bill please do contact Malama Na Honu to see if there is a way you too can contribute to protecting the honu. Otherwise, from a respectful distance please feel free to snap photos and pose questions to the volunteers to learn more about Laniakea's favorite residents and to inquire if there is any way that you can aid in this well worthy project to protect one of Hawaii's most endearing natives.
