Turtle Bay Endangered Species has spent three years devoted to educating and connecting communities locally and worldwide on the issues of endangered, threatened and native plants and animals that call Turtle Bay on the North Shore of Oahu, home. I have conducted investigative research of 30 years of the fight to protect this important coastal wetland habitat from development by Turtle Bay Resort. I have shared the results with the community, media, Resort, environmental groups and local government through writing, testimony, and presentation. There is currently one lawsuit and legislation using my material to make the conservation of the undeveloped lands at Turtle Bay a reality. We need a camera with a good zoom (to be used for bird ID too), business cards, visual props for presentations (ie big photos!) funds to attend conferences and fund raiser events of kindred organizations.

Thank you your generosity. Saw four Hawaiian coot chicks yesterday at Turtle Bay. Hawaiian Geese (nene) also have three goslings next door in the James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge. Nene have not been seen in the wild on Oahu since the time of Captain Cook. Perhaps now, with the Kahuku-Kewela Conservation Partnership almost a reality for Turtle Bay, we should start advocating for the expansion of the JCNWR...into Turtle Bay! (It was going to but then lost the funding)
We are hiking to Kahuku Point every weekend in April Get in touch to join us! We also successfully raised a bunch of money for Keep The North Shore Country. They filed a law suit with the Sierra Club against Turtle Bay Resort for their incomplete and inaccurate Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement. We contributed a lot of information for this lawsuit too. http://www.change.org/petitions/no-turtle-bay-resort-expansion-beyond-the-current-footprint

We had a beautiful day up here with the Pipeline Masters. However the traffic was as epic as the surf. Just drove home at 7:30 from a friend's house and the traffic was still there! Even on the basis of traffic the expansion of the Resort is crazy.

The account is activated. Please help me help others learn about the incredible biodiversity here at Turtle Bay. We are committed to writing grants and recruiting others to restore Turtle Bay to the most fabulous coastal wetland habitat it can be.

The Governor of Hawaii has proposed $40 million to place most of the undeveloped lands at Turtle Bay in conservation forever! Join the nearly 10,000 people from Hawaii and around the world that have also voiced their support. http://www.change.org/petitions/no-turtle-bay-resort-expansion-beyond-the-current-footprint Once we get that we can really work on restoring the fragile coastal wetlands to their potential as habitat for native plants and animals. If you can help us continue the investigative research and education please do. If you cannot - that is OK. The really important thing that everyone can do is to demonstrate support for the conservation of Turtle Bay through the petition. We will carry on regardless!

Living on the property and listed on the United States Endangered Species Act are Monk Seals, Green Sea Turtles, Hawksbill Turtles, Hawaiian Moorhens, Hawaiian Coots, Hawaiian Stilts, Hawaiian Ducks, Hawaiian Hoary Bats and Ohai. Protected by the MBTA are Sanderlings, Wandering Tattlers, Bristle Thighed Curlews, Dowitchers, Golden Plovers, and other migratory birds that live here except when they fly north to reproduce. There are native plants, birds, bees, freshwater shrimp and fish listed as protected by the State of Hawaii and some are on the candidate list for the Endangered Species Act.. Because the surveys conducted for the Environmental Impact statement were incomplete fresh water quality, freshwater aquatic life, plants and invertebrates, their presence remains undisclosed and the potential impact of development remains undetermined. Support State, Federal and Non-profit efforts at Conservation for Turtle Bay.
