School Mascots in Hilo, Hawaii

After a voyage of several thousand miles across the Pacific Ocean, the school mascots are relaxing on lava rock at a beach, and getting a chance to meet the locals...

Green Sea TurtleNene (The Hawaiian Goose, an endemic endangered species)
Ornate Butterflyfish and Coral
Unfortunately, even here on the remote beaches of Hawaii we find plastic marine debris...... but hopefully this won't always be the case.

Thank you for your participation in this important research voyage!
