Diani Turtle Watch (DTW) is a programme of Local Ocean Conservation, started in 2012.

Beach Monitors patrol the beaches every night to keep the turtles and their nests safe.

Nests that are at risk from natural or human dangers are relocated by trained Beach Monitors.

On average, Local Ocean protects and monitors  60-70 nests on the Kenyan South Coast. Through our Watamu Turtle Watch programme, another 50-60 nests are monitored in and around Watamu.

To date, more than 900 nests have been monitored and over 73,000 hatchlings have made it safely to the ocean.
