Watamu is not only a paradise for tourists and for those who fall in love with Africa and then returns, but also a "field of exploration" for many young people from all over the world.
Especially its ecosystem is of interest to the schools and university groups of Europe and America. In recent months, schools from Belgium, the United States and Austria have joined Kenyan and African schools and British universities in discovering the wonders of nature that the Watamu area boasts of, so diverse but so close to each other.
In fact, it is the peculiarity of the mangroves in the Mida Creek area, with the flora and fauna that only in this microclimate lie (from conservation of crabs to plant varieties and insects useful to the environment) to sea turtles in Watamu marine park , Which are studied, protected and cared for by local associations. Not to mention that Watamu's sea is lately busy with dolphins.
Also use the Arabuko Sokoke Forest, with its rare species of plants and reptiles, as well as other animals that are now unavailable, such as the elephant worm, and that of Gede.
There are many International Cooperations that have opened Watamu-based students and trainee projects, recently Ireland and Belgium have signed agreements with the Pwani University of Kilifi, and even some American colleges send students for updates in the field of ecology and environmental sustainability . Watamu is also present at the international environmental association "A Rocha", which, in addition to a study center, also has a number of cottages that are well-liked by students all over the world.
