While resting under the light of a full moon, the life of Honey Girl, a defenseless, gentle Honu, was violently taken from our shores on July 19, 2008. Sadly, her brutal death occurred on the same beach where she had learned to trust human beings, and had peacefully visited the North Shore for many years. This heartless crime has generated world-wide awareness, sadness, and compassion, along with many wishes that her death will not be in vain.

We believe the tragic loss of Honey Girl can become a call to action for everyone to prevent injury and abuse of our endangered species. Let’s become more aware and concerned about what is occurring on the beaches of Oahu, and respond rapidly when necessary to guard our wildlife.

We respectfully ask for island-wide support, from all ethnic backgrounds and traditions, to honor and protect our beaches, and the precious ocean life we are blessed with.
