World Sea Turtle Day

Saturday 16th June was WORLD SEA TURTLE DAY - and the Tanzanian NGO Sea Sense - whose endevours we very much support - hosted a community event in Juani on Mafia Island to celebrate.

The event included a variety of activities including football and netball matches, fun races and challenges, drama displays, music and dancing and opportunities to purchase handicrafts made by the womens group in Juani.  Groups from several villages in Mafia took part to enjoy the fun and to raise awareness of the plight of sea turtles and the wider marine environment. We do hope this lovely event helped to raise the profile of Sea Sense and their sea turtle conservation work on Mafia.
