Turtle Release In Sunny Watamu

11,158 turtle releases and counting….

We love being able to share with you the special moment when we are able to release turtles back to the ocean. It’s an everyday occurrence for us here at Local Ocean Trust but that doesn’t make it any less of a magical experience every time. This recent release from Watamu beach on a lovely sunny day was a juvenile Hawksbill turtle. This is a critically endangered species and each one we are able to release back into the ocean makes a huge difference in reduce the decline of Hawksbill turtle populations.
