Conserving Precious Coastlines
The Turtle Bay Resort includes miles of undeveloped coastline that is home to endangered and threatened species like the Hawaiian monk seal and the green sea turtle. Kahuku Point and surrounding beaches comprise one of the last intact coastal strand habitats on Oahu. This area supports many native land and animal species such as ohai, the yellow-faced bee and several indigenous birds.
Keep the Shore Country successfully negotiated an agreement with the resort owners to fund $200,000 for environmental protection and habitat enhancement by North Shore Community Land Trust, and the right to acquire or conserve additional coastal land not included in the landmark Turtle Bay Conservation Agreement of 2015.
