On July 16, 2009, only the 3rd documented Olive Ridley turtle nesting in Hawaii occurred aboard Marine Corps Base Hawaii on Pyramid Rock Beach.  The MCB Hawaii egg hatching was the most successful of the three events – over 50% of the eggs hatched. With the exception of nesting in Hawaii noted above, there is no nesting by this species anywhere in the United States or the territories under U.S. political jurisdiction.
