A green sea turtle resting on North Shore beach with other visitors. These turtles are the most common type of honu, and often rest on beach shores to conserve energy and increase their body temperature. Green sea turtles were considered critically endangered at one point as a result of factors such as coastal development, pollution runoff, and ocean plastic (which still are very big problems for marine life). While the green sea turtle population has seen improvement, the hawksbill turtle population is one of the species in Hawai’i that remains endangered.
