Hundreds of turtles are rescued every year by working closely with the fishing community.
Since 1998, LOC, in collaboration with Kenya Wildlife Services and the local fishers, have run our Bycatch & Release Programme.
.Each rescued turtle is assessed, then measured, weighed and tagged. If it is in good health, the turtle is transported to the Watamu Marine National Park where it is released back into the ocean.
To date more than 19,000 turtle rescues have been conducted and the data collected has provided incredible insight into turtle behaviour and physiology.
