From Napua at the Mauna Lani Beach Club

At one time, in generations past, Hawai‘i Island adapted to being 100% sustainable. In a unique and efficient system defined by land divisions called ahapua‘a, folks who lived in the mountains traded hardwoods and other products with folks who lived near the ocean and had aquaculture in place. Farmers in fresh water regions grew taro and vegetables to trade with fishermen and salt-makers, and so on. This balanced and sustainable society produced excess, and the population was able to take time off every year—for the feasting, games and celebration of the Makahiki. “Napua Restaurant Web Site”…

The Kohala Center has won a NOAA grant to assist Puako Makai Watch with our Reef-Greeter info booth. It will provide advertising design work to attract volunteers, conduct volunteer training sessions, provide data collection formats, volunteer t-shirts and booth materials. Our goal to be successful with this educational outreach effort is to enlist enough volunteers to operate a booth at both Paniau and Waialea Bay two or more days per month. I am proud to have initiated an association with The Kohala Center for our reef protection efforts. Their Reef Teach education program at Kahalu’u Bay is a fine example, highlighting their ability and experience thru Cindi and Matt and their successful grant writing team.. We are lucky to have them working with us to expand our capabilities. Contact Randy or myself for more about the Reef-Greeter info booth. NEXT: The Kohala Center is also willing to help with a grant proposal for a Biological Monitoring Program for the Puako reef. Please email the PuakoCommunityAssociation Board members, listed above, asking them to act in support of this important part of our reef protection efforts. A Hui Hou, Phil

Honu (green sea turtles)

Honu (green sea turtles) are native to the Hawaiian Islands and can be found in our shallow coastal waters. Here at Puako Beach, the turtles commonly swim into the shallow waters to feed on the limu (algae) growing on the bottom. Sometimes they crawl out of the water onto the rocks or the beach to bask or sunbathe, usually during the daylight hours. This basking is unique to Hawaiian green turtles and is a naturally occurring behavior.

Although sea turtles live most of their lives in the ocean, adult females must return to land in order to lay eggs. Scientists believe that nesting females return to the same beach on which they were born. Sea turtles often travel long distances, up to 800 miles, from their feeding grounds to their nesting beaches. The eggs of the turtles arthe size of ping-pong balls and have leathery shells. Turtles lay an average of 100 eggs in a nest dug in the sand.

Green turtles are protected by both state and federal laws as a threatened species. That makes it illegal to disturb or handle them in any way. Fines can be imposed for disturbing any sea turtle. If you see turtles being captured, harmed, harassed or killed, please call the Enforcement Division of the National Marine Fisheries Service at 808-974-6208. After business hours , please dial 0 and ask for “enterprise 5469″ You can aid in sea turtle recovery by reporting nesting or basking activities and dead, sick, injured or stranded turtles to the Honolulu Laboratory of the National Marine Fisheries Service at 808-943-1276 or 943-1221.

If you see turtles basking, it is important that you do not bother them. They will crawl back into the water on their own when they are ready. Please enjoy the beauty and wonderful creature, be it above or below the water.

Malama Na Honu———- (Take care of the turtles)

You will always see turtles here in Puako. Please follow all rules when staying at a Vacation Rental here on the Big Island.

Thank you– MahaloHonu in Puako Hawaiian Sea Turtles
