stranding with shark bites and fibropapillomatosis
fibropapillomatosis and entangled (it took me ~15 minutes to get all of the line off, as it was totally wrapped all around the tumors, head and flippers)
Kihei, Maui, Hawaii.
Several adults and juveniles at the Sugar Beach event venue.
Two female green sea turtles with FP tumors (mostly around the eyes-one did have a tumor on it's flipper). Several other turtles in the area (one male, two females and one juvenile) showed no tumor growth.
Male green sea turtle with FP tumors. He was feeding along the rocky shoreline.
Growing on a Banksia trunk.
Dark grey, very sleek compared to another Dolphin seen the same day
Kameole #3 Beach Park in Kihei, Maui, Hawaii, USA.
No photo of the bird, just observation. The shoreline is signed here as a nesting site for Wedge-tailed Shearwaters (see pics). Briefly glimpsed one or two during daylight along rocky shoreline cliff. After nightfall, we saw several silhouetted against sky (could see wedge-shaped tail and long wings) as they returned to their burrow nests in sandy ground set back from the rocky shore. Heard them calling from nests about 9:00 pm: an eery ooOOOoo call and other vocalizations that sounded like a baby crying or a catfight.
