A Hawaiian green sea turtle and a juvenile masked booby rest atop a buoyant “ghost net” at Manawai.
Lead diver Derek Levault returned with a full load of ghost net that was collected from the remote reefs of Manawai.
After being cut free from the reef, large “ghost nets” like the one above are recovered by specially trained marine debris technicians from Papahanaumokuakea Marine Debris Project.
