Turtle biologist Rachel Silverman will be talking all about the Hawaiian honu, or green sea turtle, at the Kahalu`u Beach Park in Kona on Tuesday, Feb. 10.  Silverman will outline the different types of turtles found in Hawai`i, how they support local ecosystems, what currently threatens them, and how the public can help protect them.

The talk will be held in the beach park’s small pavilion from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

‘Turtle talk’ is sponsored by the Kahalu`u Bay Education Center, a partnership between the County of Hawaii and The Kohala Center, aiming to maintain a healthy ecosystem at the bay.

All attendees will receive a free informational card on the Hawaiian honu.  The Center is requesting a $10 donation to continue supporting its education and conservation programs.
