Description: Honuâ??ea or Hawksbill Turtle is native to Hawaiâ??i. The species is considered to be endangered but is slowly growing thanks to conservation efforts particularly on the Big Island of Hawaiâ??i where they are protected by law. The Hawksbill can grow up to 250 pounds and feeds mostly on green sea moss or sponges. Their nesting period runs from July to October. Building the nest and laying eggs takes several hours and they can easily be seen along the coast, particularly at several of the Black Sand Beaches. This Honuâ??ea is pulling himself up onto the lava to enjoy a rest in the warm afternoon sun.
