Category: Outdoor Scenes

 

Photo and caption by Adam DuBrowa

A dawn awaking with these gentle giants and named after the green color of the fat found beneath its shell, the green sea turtle spends much of its 80-year lifespan plying the tropical and subtropical waters of the world’s oceans. Unlike other sea turtles, green sea turtles are mostly herbivores, feeding off seagrass that grows in shallow lagoons. The waters and beaches of Hawai`i are the turtle’s most important habitat in the US.

Location: Two Step Beach, Kona, Hawaii
