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.
In fact volunteers had to dig for more than a meter to bring them back to light.
Thereafter, another strip of beach was discovered where many other eggs were hidden for the species' reproduction.
For now, those found will be put into an incubator with the chance to reach 100 percent births, which is practically impossible for various reasons in nature.
Operations like this are necessary because turtle eggs in this coastal area are threatened by local fishermen who take them away to eat them, as they are rich in protein and fat, as well as the same turtles that offer a broth and a meat Particularly nutritious.
But marine turtles, who live in the Malindi Marine Reserve and Watamu, are a protected species and the penis for those who are captured are very severe and have been extended to their eggs.
The management of Jacaranda Beach Resort has been pleased with the operation and will continue to monitor the situation and collaborate with the Local Ocean Trust to safeguard any marine species.
"It is a sign that our beach is not only the most beautiful but also the least polluted and protected of the coast," said Jacaranda Marketing Manager Pietro Mastella. "It is our duty to do our best to maintain the environmental balance of this Fantastic corner of paradise ".
