Humpback whales of Hawaii

Whale Watching in Hawaii What are humpback whales? Kohola (humpback whales) are one of the larger species of baleen whales, with adult males ranging between 40 and 52 feet and weighing up to 45 tons. Despite their size, humpback whales are surprisingly graceful acrobats. Keep your eye on the ocean and you might see one “breach,” propelling up to 40 percent of its body out of the water and landing on its side with a spectacular splash. If you’ve ever heard a whale song, you’ve listened to a male humpback whale. Their haunting melodies can be heard underwater from up to twelve miles away. Why do whales come to Hawaii? Just as our idyllic weather beckons to tourists around the world, the warm shallow waters (less than 600 feet) surrounding the main Hawaiian Islands are a favorite destination for humpback…

About Hawai’i’s Sea Turtles Hawai’i is the home to five species of sea turtles (see column at right). Olive ridleys, loggerheads and leatherbacks are usually only encountered in deep offshore waters. But it’s common for snorkelers and divers on all the islands to see the honu (green sea turtle) in near shore waters. Green sea turtles, however, nests in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, a remote, protected area where they thrive. Unfortunately, honu (greens) are suffering from a disease called fibropapillomatosis. This herpes-family virus causes the growth of white to blackish, cauliflower-like tumors. These grow on the soft tissues of the turtle’s body, internally and externally, and inhibit foraging, breathing, mobility and digestion. It is unclear what causes this disease, but research is ongoing worldwide to find a cure. To some, the Hawaiian name for hawksbill sea turtles is ‘ea, but…
