Watamu Turtles love Jacaranda Bay

Local Ocean Trust save 53 eggs on the beach

The beach of Jacaranda Bay, recently chosen by our readers the most beautiful of the Kenyan coast, also seems to be very enjoyable for sea turtles.
In recent days, the Local Ocean Trust volunteers from Watamu Turtles discovered beach turtles on the beach in front of the Jacaranda Beach Resort, which had been laid in the night.
The group was warned by the masai guard of the resort, who under the moon had noticed a go of turtles who, coming from the sea, dug narrow but deep holes in the sand.
