Sea Turtle Watch

12 March 2015

Sea Turtle, Watamu Turtle Watch

Watamu is a small village but nationally important nesting population of sea turtles, with an average of 40 nests in year and over in the Watamu/Malindi Marine Parks and Reserves. Watamu Turtle Watch (WTW) has a nest protection program, which works in co-operation with local people & Kenya Wildlife Service to protect all nests laid on Watamu and Malindi beaches. Local participation is encouraged through a financial incentive scheme. Daily patrols check for nesting turtles, and tracks in the sand that indicate new nests. Nesting turtles that are encountered are tagged and biometric data collected.

In 2003 WTW set up a simple rehabilitation facility where sick turtles can be cared for and rehabilitated back into the wild. This is the only one of its kind in East Africa. Each year WTW is brought sick and injured turtles, which previously we were unable to treat. WTW has linked up with  local and international experts to provide the necessary medical advice.

The WTW centre is open to visitors every afternoon 14:00-16:00 from Monday to Friday, and every morning 09.30-12:00 from Tuesday to Saturday, Sunday closed.

4th trip & 9th flight for #TheKolaBaby 🤰🏾✈️ I love that we’re already setting the standard for adventure with our little family. Currently on our #babymoon but on the blog I’m sharing tips for traveling (especially long distance flights) while pregnant!
P.S. My linea negra popped up a few weeks ago and I have scarring from ingrowns in my stomach but I’m obsessed with my tummy regardless 😊️ Shoutout to the one ab that’s still trying to hold on 🤣
