HONOLULU (KHON2) — In celebration of National Sea Turtle Day, Sea Life Park Hawaii announced it will release two turtles from the park’s honu breeding program.
The turtles, Holokai and Aheahe, were named during Sea Life Park’s ‘Turtle Naming Contest’ on social media.
The event, which is not open to the public, is part of the park’s overall effort to teach the community about the importance of the Hawaiian Sea Turtle amid nesting season.
Sea Life Park also offers a variety of educational resources, such as ongoing conservation efforts and what you should do when encountering a turtle, to help the public learn more about these sea creatures.
