Photographic Identification Protocol and Catalog of Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles
 
Abstract: 
Ho’okipa Beach Park and several other beaches on the North Shore of Maui, Hawai’i have experienced the constant presence of basking Hawaiian green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas) since 2008. The beaches on the North Shore of Maui provide a unique laboratory in which to study the dynamics of the population of the species, currently included in the IUCN red list as endangered, through evaluation of variables such as climatic, seasonal, demographic, and Chelonia mydas impacted by increasing numbers of people in basking habitats.   
 
During three months of observation in the summer of 2016, > 600 observations and photographs of these turtles, a photograph identification program was developed to identify individual turtles coming to Ho’okipa Beach Park. A protocol using facial scute photographs was developed and >180 individual turtles have been identified through photograph recognition. The three-month study’s significantly high re-sighting rate poses the question, “Can the Hawaiian green sea turtle population on the North Shore of Maui be considered semi-closed or habitual?”  
 
Further study will expand the numbers of turtles included in the photographic identification catalog as well as examining variables listed above.

This project is a collaboration between a university qualitative researcher, a turtle researcher, and two Italian marine biologists to create, implement, and evaluate the use of a photographic identification system to document the population of Hawaiian green sea turtles on the north shore of Maui.  Shared leadership and the ability of each leader to select appropriate leadership skills with wide ranging community partners is critical as the catalog is created and managed.

This research project requires that each of the participating partners access and use specific leadership skills in order to create, utilize, and evaluate the catalog that will be developed.  Community partnerships that require specific leadership strategies of the researchers are essential in this project.  This type of work can be terratorial in nature and the collaboration across agencies and countries in the creation of this unique catalog reflects the abiltiy to collaborate across cultures and countries.
