  • 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¬† 50-60 nests per year in Watamu. Through our Diani Turtle Watch initiative, another 60-70 nests are monitored on the Kenyan south coast. To date, more than 900 nests have been monitored and over 73,000 hatchlings have made it safely to the ocean.

  • It is vital that people understand about the marine environment and how their every day life and future is both influenced and dependent on it. LOC works with 30 local schools. We organise visits to our Marine Information Centre for students as well as providing educational outreach to schools and involving students in field excursions. Every year we interact with over 2,500 school children.
