Hiwahiwa

"the precious one" 

Hiwahiwa is an adult female, approximately 40 years old and weighing about 230 lbs. (104 kg). A year round basker, she is among the top ten in basking frequency. An apparent collision with a watercraft severely damaged the top of her shell. In 2002 and 2010, Hiwahiwa completed the 1,000 mile round trip from her Oahu feeding grounds to the nesting beaches of the French Frigate Shoals. On her recent migration she traveled with a TDR (time depth recorder) on her shell and was recorded as having achieved a record green sea turtle dive of 570 ft. (174 meters).
