ByCatch Release Programme – Fuel


Hundreds of turtles are rescued every year by working closely with the fishing community.

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 17,000 turtle rescues have been conducted and the data collected has provided incredible insight into turtle behaviour and physiology.
