Jumba la Mtwana, also known as Jumba Ruins is not only a mysterious and fasinating hystorical place, is also one of the last safe paradises of the Kenya coast, a secluded refuge where the Sea Turtles are coming every year to reproduce,the last safe oasis of the Hawksbill and Green Turtles.
The two Turtles species that are found commonly nesting on the Kenya shores are the Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas) and the Hawksbill (Eretmachelys imbricata) and there are 22 known nesting beches, Jumba Ruins is one of those.
The nesting season follows the northeast and the southeast Monsoons with the peak of nesting for the green turtle between March and June and for the Hawksbill turtle between December and January, however this morning (october 22 2009) I was surprised to see a new nesting ...... just next to Monsoons, the new restaurant on the beach, I took pics and I will see how to make them public meanwhile I am wondering; on this season, a Green Turtle or a Hawksbill?
