Turtle Hatching at Ras Kutani
Take the opportunity to view first-hand as baby turtles hatch on the sheltered beach at Ras Kutani and make their first journey towards the ocean. Sea Sense, an NGO works closely with costal communities to conserve and protect endangered marine species.
Sea turtles have been nesting on Tanzania's beaches for over 150 million years and the central Tanzania coast is a particularly significant area for loggerhead, olive ridley and leatherback turtles to forage along due to the abundance of coral reef and sea grass habitats which provide important foraging grounds.
In September 2014, the central Tanzania coast became the first site in the Indian Ocean South-East Asia region to be formally recognised as a 'Regional Site of Importance to Marine Turtles.' Over the past few decades, marine turtle populations have been under increasing pressure in Tanzania as a result of bycatch in fishing nets, habitat degradation and poaching for eggs and meat.
