Honu Hospital

We’re rehabilitating green sea turtles (honu) with the Maui Ocean Center Marine Institute. We rescue a turtle, learn about the latest techniques in turtle care, and witness the release of recovered patient MA164. Then, we explore the Maui Ocean Center and talk-story with the center’s cultural advisor and general manager.
