Sea Turtle Conservation
It's estimated that only one in 1,000 Sea turtle hatchlings will survive to adulthood.
WHY DOES IT MATTER?
The growing fisheries crisis has global consequences that are biological, economic and social. While the dependence on fish is high and continues to increase, about 90% of our oceans are already overfished or fished to their limits. Irresponsible practices have resulted in the degradation of aquatic ecosystems and food resources therein.
WHAT IS WWF- KENYA DOING?Sea turtle populations are threatened globally. The key strategy we employ is collaborative sea turtles conservation that involves incentivizing community members and volunteers for every nest reported and each successful hatchling. Together with community members, KWS and local organizations we conduct intensive and extensive monitoring along the coastal Kenya
We participate in the harmonization of data collection protocols along the Kenyan coast.
Together with other stakeholders we conduct intensive awareness creation to bring the community on board; help them to form community-based Turtle Conservation Groups (TCGs) to assist in monitoring.
