A gift, that gives more  – adopt a sea turtle!

Did you know?

Sea turtles are widely distributed along Kenya’s coast and they also play a vital role in the global marine ecosystem. Ultimately, protecting sea turtles helps protect our oceans and coral reefs.  However, threats such as climate change, poaching, habitat destruction, overfishing, and decreased nesting grounds are seriously harming our ocean’s turtles.

Here at Local Ocean Conservation, we strive to help protect sea turtles through our By-Catch Release Program, Turtle Rehabilitation Centre, and Nesting Programmes.  We also recognize that our community in Watamu is the backbone for our work and the future of marine conservation in Kenya.

Adopting a turtle today would help protect turtles as well as support our education and awareness initiatives, our community projects, and support sustained livelihoods.
