Description

A male green sea turtle with FP tumor around the eye. This was one of several turtles foraging very close to the shoreline on limu that was detached from the rocks and sitting in low lying areas of the bottom. Two turtles (one female, and this male) had tumors, another female foraging with them who had no tumors. In the second photo, the untumored female can be seen behind the male. The third photo is of the female, who has some small tumors on her neck, and is missing most of her right front flipper.

About

The aim of this project is to monitor (i) GREEN and HAWKSBILL turtles, and (ii) INVASIVE ALGAE in Hawaii. We're particularly interested in observations of turtles with tumors. Macroalgae are important food source for green turtles and may also promote disease. If you see a stranded turtle call the NOAA Stranding Hotline at 808 983 5730 during business hours, after hours 808 288 5685.
