5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We watched the WTW release turtles into the Indian Ocean after they had been nursed back to health. Truly moving!

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We popped into Watamu Turtle Watch whilst on holiday in Watamu. What an eye opener that proved to be, especially for our children who had no idea about the effects plastic bags have on our ocean environment. We were lucky enough to watch a turtle being released back into the sea so saw first hand how this project works. Congratulations Watamu Turtle Watch on your ceaseless efforts to help Kenyan turtles.

“Fantastic Resource.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

The woman who showed us round had only been there two years and had no previous training, she worked in a boutique. However she knew everything about the turtles and had formed a bond with them all and was very upset when telling some of the tragic stories.
