12,000 turtle releases and counting, new nests on the beach and educating the next generation.
As we get into the month of February we are pleased to share with you the positive start we have had to the year.
We started the year in great spirits after conducting the 12,000th release of our By Catch Release Programme in December 2014. We were so grateful to the many supporters and friends who were in Watamu and joined us on such short notice to mark this special occasion.
The next generation of marine conservationists!
As the year draws to an end, so too does this year’s Marine Scout Programme. To conclude the hard work of our Local Ocean Marine Scouts, we invited their parents to the project for an end of year celebration.
All the Marine Scouts arrived at the project at 4pm with their parents. They looked really smart in their uniforms and their faces shone with excitement as they love their time at LOT.
All the info on the 2nd quater of the year.
The LOT education programme is a great way for students to learn about the marine environment. University students on internships with us, those seeking work experience or those doing their Duke of Edinburgh award have been tremendously inspired and have gained skills relevant to their course. We are very proud of the students who spend time with us at the project and understand the need to conserve our oceans and proceed to create awareness back at school.
