Welcome to Fantasy Island

March 20, 2015

Our Government and Their Scientists are Living on Fantasy Island. Billions and Billions of dollars of environmental destruction on the North Shore of Kauai, HI. and they have no answers.

Once again yesterday I was saddened to see more of my sea turtle friends (honu) at Tunnels Reef (Makua) that looked like they have been through a firing squad! Their flippers were shredded with live flesh exposed and their shells were all chipped up. I have now seen over a dozen turtles at Tunnels with their eyes gone, flippers shredded and shells damages. I have been diving with sea turtles for dozens of years and have seen thousands underwater. I have over 300 hours of HD underwater sea turtle video and a movie out world wide on sea turtles, and I have not once seen anything like what is happening to the turtles currently at Tunnels. This reef happens to be the same reef where I have document 50% of the corals dying within the last three years, dead sharks and dead fish. What is happening at Tunnels? We know it is the largest ever testing ground for the US military electronic microwave and sonar war games. Other than that I am completely stumped as a professional marine biologist with over 20,000 hours in the sea studing reefs and marine life as to what could cause this type of damage. Anyone have any ideas? Sea turtles are protected under the Federal Endangered Species Act and there should be an emergency federal investigation into this issue. That simply is the law, not my opinion. These turtled do not have tumors and they have good body weight so they are not starving or have any long term disease. I know this because I had a turtle breeding zoo and have raised over 50,000 turtles! Please feel free to go to my web and see my honu movie up at and help me find out what is killing our turtles in Kauai! Aloha, Marine Biologist, Hanalei HI


On the hills to the top right on Kauai, HI there is over 30 million pulsed watts of electromagnetic radiation ( a few Terrawatts of EIRP from radars and electronic warfare equipment. Add in another 50-100 million watts of pulsed radars on warships when RIMPAC is in town and I think you will understand why the entire North Shore reef of Kauai is “cooked”, the fish are turning black and disappearing, that coral reef is almost all dead and the CaCO3 skeleton is dissolving. And you can see what is happening to the turtles. The government has NO ANSWERS


Electrons and charged ions will discharge along pointed/narrow surfaces, like the backs of flippers and the thin edges of the scutes of the turtle’s shells




Major environmental disaster underway in Kauai, Hawaii. Do you guys see the government anywhere?

Hi ….

I did a snorkel yesterday at Tunnels and out of 8 turtles I saw, four had damaged shells, chipped shells and or mangled shredded flippers!! This is the same kind of damage I saw during RIMPAC. The turtles looked like they had gone through a firing squad! What else could cause this but the Navy sonar? I now have seen over a dozen turtles in this poor shape out at Tunnels and I only dive there twice a month so just think how many are actually damaged or have been killed. I have not seen any turtles at Tunnlels with tumors like I see often on the south side and these turtles are in clean pure water on the outer reefs with a good flow rate of mid ocean water.
Since the turtles are protected under the Endangered Species Act it seems like someone should follow up and try to find out what is killing them.

Are front flippers worse than back?
I notice the damage appears along the trailing edges their flippers and along the thin edges of the scutes of the shell.
I think the cause is some type of energy that is discharging along the thin/pointed parts.
I don’t see burns but I do see a lot of decayed tissue.  I think they are moving through some type of energy wave, like an airplane through turbulence or a thunderstorm. Could be sonar or could be like sticking your tongue on a 9 volt battery…you don’t really get burned but it is not real good for your health long term…
My two cents.

If it happens to be electromagnetic discharges along their trailing/pointed edges I suggest you equip all of your Kauai turtles and fish with these:

That way you can keep all of the military radars operating…

You are 100% correct. No decaying tissue, no black diseased tissue and the worst damage on the inside edge of the front flippers, thin edge of the scutes, and around the eyes!! All discharge points! The tissue damage on these turtles is fresh because there is nothing growing on the white tattered inner tissue! I know we are right but who will listen is the question! The news and Dr ………. from the USGS Infectious disease department already  responded with concern so that is good!

Dude, do those turtles look normal to you?

  1. Reblogged this on encompassingchaos and commented:
    I would hope that there are more people out there to help in investigating this. One would think this is a superb news story that a major news network would take on, but it seems those mainstream news networks are more concerned about appeasing our government than doing true investigating reporting.

    Can they make a human model as well?

  3. Please file a petition and put on fb and other social media.

    • The government knows

      • I understand that, but a petition on social media could get more support from the masses.

      • I don’t disagree. I get readers from ~ 15-30 countries a day on the blog, which also goes out on facebook and twitter. Terry Lilley, the marine biologist in Kauai has also been posting on Facebook and emailing plenty of State and Federal agencies. Not much visible action from the government other than a couple letters. I also flew to Kauai in October to take a look for myself and help film a documentary/TV pilot. It is very obvious there is a massive, localized problem. At this point I have resorted to making fun of the government at the lack of action. It is a messed up environment we are leaving our children. I am trying to do my part
        Thanks for reading, Stewart

        When the 47 republicans wrote their letter to Iran, the petition filed went viral and in 4 days there were 250,000 signatures. This is something , with your photos and story, could get much more attention quickly. Petitions seem to make an impression more than a regular post sometimes. Just trying to help get the word out. If I had a better grasp of the situation I would file it myself. There are many people who have been to Hawaii and have a fondness for these creatures. I’m sure they would be outraged as well. It couldn’t hurt for you to try the idea out. It’s a very simple process to file a petition, relatively speaking. There are many filed all the time, for far less important things than this. At least check into it.

      • venora dobrowolski permalink

        Yes, that’s the site. Look at the list of existing petitions for format. The right wording can do so much. Let me know and I will be happy to share and help get the word out. Facts not emotion will do the most traveling on social media. Good luck and thanks for bringing the situation to my attention.

      • Done, your turn…

      • permalink

        Now, if you post your story with the petition embedded in it. The connection to effects on wildlife will be made. I posted your story after the petition. A clear explanatory connection will get attention since most have no idea what the petition is about since most have no idea what is going on. Show them, explain it in layman’s language and add petition within the body of the story.

      • I did post a copy of the petition on my blog and some pictures with a link that takes you to the petition to sign.

      • venora dobrowolski permalink

        I have already reposted it twice since that keeps it at the top of posts so people checking in at different times don’t have to dig so far. Now over 219 signatures. If you find a way to include story with the petition attached, it makes it easier for folks to sign. Doing what I can.

      • Thanks! I’ll see what I can do


      OK, the petition is on, , WordPress, Facebook and Twitter. Only 99,998 signatures to go. Your turn!
