Don't let Hawaii's green sea turtles lose their Endangered Species Act protection.
Right now the National Marine Fisheries Service is considering a proposal to delist the Hawaii population of green sea turtles -- also known as honu -- even though the turtles have not yet reached their target population size and still face danger from fisheries and the growing threats of sea-level rise and plastic pollution.
Green sea turtles are a treasured part of Hawaii's natural heritage, and it is precisely these protections that have saved them and helped them manage modern problems they have little hope of overcoming alone.
It would be drastically premature to take away the honu's protected status -- any momentum in the direction of their full recovery would be lost.
