Sick and injured turtles are monitored, nursed back to health and then returned to the ocean. This facility also serves as a powerful education tool to local and international visitors of all ages.
This is the only Turtle Rehabilitation Centre in East Africa.
To date over 490 patients have been treated in this facility, with afflictions ranging from exhaustion and minor injuries from fishing nets and hooks to severe spear gun puncture wounds and predation injuries. The centre also has a quarantine area to treat turtles with Fibropapillomatosis disease.
