The National Sea Turtle and Conservation Strategy Launch

The Kenya Wildlife Service will soon launch a national sea turtle conservation strategy, which will provide a coordinated framework for the conservation of sea turtles in Kenya.
The strategy is intended to guide efforts in conservation and management of sea turtles and their habitats.

The main tools to be utilized towards the realization of this strategy include advocacy, communication, education, public awareness, targeted research and monitoring, and threat mitigation.The strategy will build on ongoing efforts and initiate changes that will add value to sea turtle conservation efforts.  It is also aligned to international and regional conservation conventions and agreements.

The strategy will aim to protect nesting beaches and critical foraging habitats from degradation, eliminate illegal harvesting and trade in sea turtles and their products, mitigate fisheries impacts, and enhance collaborative participation of local communities and other stakeholders in conservation.

 It will also contribute towards the realization of Vision 2030, which recognizes tourism as a major sector towards economic empowerment and to the increasing international value of eco-tourism in relation to species conservation.
