Turtle Protection

Our pioneering project that has to date

tagged and released over 1,200 turtles &

 helped over 102,250 hatchlings to the ocean,

from over 890 nests on Takwa and Shella Beach.

Kenyan waters are home to five threatened species of sea turtles;

Green, Hawksbill, Olive Ridley, Leatherback and Loggerhead. 

The back bone of LaMCoT is turtle conservation, we involve local fishermen, community members, sponsors and supporters in our turtle and nest protection programs. 

Through our education program we increase the awareness of why turtles should be protected, this also encourages community members to inform us of any turtle exploitation or poaching activity
