Giving Nature a Voice – Season 01 Episode 08

Synopsis

Turtle Rescue (Part 2)

What are the strategies employed by Watamu’s Turtle Watch to save endangered sea turtles: promote alternative livelihoods in an area that is severely overfished, pay fishermen who return turtles they inadvertently caught in their nets, clean plastic debris from beaches before it’s ingested, and relocate turtle nests from heavily trafficked beaches to more secluded spots. It’s part of Turtle Watch’s comprehensive community based conservation model.
