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.
