Local Ocean Trust
About Local Ocean Trust
Who are we?
We are a private, not for profit organisation committed to the protection of Kenya’s marine environment. Our dream is to encourage people to look after their very own ‘Local Ocean’ in order to create a chain of properly managed and conserved areas of ocean all over the world. Imagine if everyone looked after his or her own little patch of ocean!
What do we do?
We work hard to ensure the future of sea turtles, the protection of a fragile marine environment and the promotion of sustainable livelihoods in the Watamu area. We campaign to both our local community and those further afield to love their “Local Ocean”.
