The waters right outside of the JW Marriott Ihilani and the proposed Ko Olina Disney Timeshare nurture many marine species. These include dolphins, humpback whales, Hawaiian monk seals, and a few species of sea turtles.
Ko Olina waters are also home to ancient coral reefs, which sustain thousands of ocean plants and animals. They are more diverse than rainforests!
One quarter of these species are found nowhere else on earth. Despite so much variety, the marine wildlife in Hawaii is fragile and vulnerable.
