Life Aquatic | Sea Sense (Sea Turtles - Tanzania)
Sea Sense is an NGO that works closely with coastal communities in Tanzania to conserve and protect endangered marine wildlife, including sea turtles, dugongs, whales, dolphins, and whale sharks. These species and their habitats face a very uncertain future, mostly due to human activities in the coastal zone. Sea Sense has a grass roots approach and has recruited and trained a network of over 60 Conservation Officers to act as ambassadors in their village and serve as a vital link between Sea Sense and the wider community. Activities focus on research and conservation, education and capacity development, sustainable livelihoods, and governance and leadership. Sea Sense projects are specifically designed to address the root causes of the degradation of marine and coastal ecosystems.
