Now in its 36th year, join the festivities this July 3rd and 4th and celebrate Turtle Independence Day as we release those deemed large enough to journey into the Pacific. Turtle Independence Day represents the rebirth of our Green sea turtle hatchlings after 2 to 3 years of growth in the turtle pond. Gather along Mauna Lani's oceanfront on July 4th, aptly known as Turtle Independence Day, to witness their homecoming to the Pacific Ocean. In partnership with Sea Life Park.

ウミガメプログラム

Mālama Honu, Mālama Honua

Established in 1989, the Mālama Honu, Mālama Honua program creates awareness for endangered Green sea turtles through education, conservation and community. In partnership with O’ahu-based marine and wildlife center Sea Life Park, Mauna Lani nurtures captive-reared hatchlings in our turtle pond, also known as Honu (Turtle) Lagoon. As our sea turtles grow, thousands of visitors linger by Honu Lagoon to learn about the Green sea turtle's relationship with the environment. After two to three years of growth, our sea turtles return to their home in the ocean on Turtle Independence Day.

“Our relationship with our natural resources lives through the central idea of aloha ʻāina, of having a loving, respectful and reciprocal relationship with our land," says Ethan Souza, a Natural Resources Manager at Mauna Lani. The honu (Green sea turtle) is so culturally and ecologically significant that ancient Hawaiians may have believed their shells symbolically carried a map of the Polynesian Oceania world, encompassing the Hawaiian islands, Rapa Nui and Aotearoa.

  • Located at the oceanfront (in front of the Surf Shack)
  • Annually on July 4th
  • Roughly 3 hours
  • All ages
  • Open to resort guests and community members
