Lamu Marine Conservation Trust (LAMCOT)


Lamu Marine Conservation Trust (LamCoT) is primarily a marine turtle conservation organization. LAMCOT works under the umbrella organisation Kenya Sea Turtle Conservation Committee (KESCOM) collaborating with all turtle conservation groups up and down the Kenyan coast. Data collected on nesting, releasing, mortality and further activities concerning sustainability of biodiversity and ecosystem is sent to (KESCOM) and Tusk Trust together with annual reports. Using a grant from Tusk, local fishermen are paid incentives (depending on the size of the turtle) to bring in turtles caught in their nets to be measured, treated for any health problems, tagged and released.
