Turtle Independence Day 2018

Come to Hawaii and stay at Mauna Lani Resort for Turtle Independence Day!

July is a wonderful month to come to the Big Island and enjoy the beaches and gorgeous weather. One thing you must do if you are on the island in July is join in on the Honu (Hawaiian green sea turtle) release.

The Mauna Lani Hotel has been releasing juvenile Honu since 1989. The turtles come from Oahu’s Sea Life Park to the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel, where the Honu are raised in the hotels saltwater ponds. The honu is cared for until they reach a size and weight that will ensure survival in the wild.

On the 4th of July, Honu will be brought to the ocean’s edge late morning.

A welcome ceremony will kick-off the event followed by the Honu release. This annual event honors the Honu and helps educate the public about the Hawaiian green sea turtle.

Mauna Lani Resort was named one of the world’s Top Luxury Eco-Friendly Beach Destinations by Condé Nast Traveler. Condé Nast Traveler also recognized Mauna Lani Resort’s green sea turtle program as an ecotourism attraction. The resort was selected as one of only ten golf resorts in the world for the first-ever Green Golf Award as a leader in environmental stewardship by Golf Magazine.
