The Turtle Trax Toon is conceived and drawn by howzit (Ursula Keuper-Bennett).
This week's cartoon is based on a passage in the Synopsis of Biological Data on the Green Turtle in the Hawaiian Islands (October 1980):
"In June 1974, the author watched a 2 m tiger shark beach itself momentarily on East Island during the unsuccessful pursuit of a juvenile green turtle that had fled to the shoreline."
This series of toons celebrates the 25th anniversary of the sea turtle research program at the French Frigate Shoals. For more information about the natal home of the Hawaiian green turtle, visit our French Frigate Shoals Anniversary pages.
