Respect For Honu: Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle

I have a deep respect for this sea create. Whenever I SCUBA, free drive or snorkel and I see Hawaiian green sea turtles swimming around I never dive down and try to touch them. I never chase them or try and harass them in any way. I know this scares and stresses them out. I know they are ancient sea creatures and many legends and stories have been written and told about them. So please people/tourists, give Honu respect and don’t chase or try and touch him/her.
