Hawksbill Turtle Pic

KENYA, Watamu: In a photograph taken by Make It Kenya 11 Decmeber 2015, Fikiri Kiponda, a member of the Local Ocean Trust team, carries a Hawksbill turtle for release back to the ocean from a deserted beach along Kenya’ Indian Ocean coast.

The Local Ocean Trust and Watamu Turtle Watch work to protect both the future of sea turtles and the wider fragile marine environment along Kenya’s Watamu stretch of coastline through nest-monitoring and protection of turtle nesting sites,  practising a catch and release programme working closely with local fisherman who inadvertently catch sea turtles in the nets, and conservation education and awareness outreach with local communities.
