Talk about perfect, self-sustaining systems.

Since 1989, Mauna Lani has received juvenile Green Sea Turtles from Oahu’s Sea Life Park, and raised them until they grow to a size and weight that are deemed appropriate for release into the wild. This release occurs every July 4th.
KOHALA COAST - An annual favorite for Hawaii Island on the 4th of July is the Turtle Independence Day Celebration. Crowds lined the beach at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows to watch the honu be released into the Pacific Ocean. This video and media release was supplied by the resort.
