M45, Honu’ea Hatchlings, giclée by Dietrich Varez



Honu’ea Hatchlings, print M45, by Dietrich Varez. Green sea turtles are common around the island, but our coastal waters also harbor its more elusive and rare cousin—the Hawaiian hawksbill turtle. Called honu ʻea or ʻea by Hawaiians, they feed almost exclusively on sponges. Males never come to shore and females only do so in order to nest. Of the few beaches they nest on statewide, three are protected along the remote coast in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park.

This is a giclée reproduction print on archival paper.

Dimensions: 12″ x 18″
