Name And Adopt A Turtle In Kenya

Adoption of Identified Sea Turtles

As part of our Indian Ocean Turtle Photo-ID program, we now offer adoptions of newly identified and still name-less sea turtles in Kenya. These turtles have been added to our database with only an identification code. When you adopt a turtle, you get to chose the name!

Pick your favourite turtle in the gallery on top of the page and note down the turtle identification code. You will need it for the adoption form.

How to Adopt a Turtle in Kenya

  1. Pick your favourite turtle in the gallery at the top of the page and note down the identification number
  2. Make a donation of minimum £50 to the Olive Ridley Project and mention the turtle ID code and the name of the turtle in the message field
  3. Complete the Symbolic Turtle Adoption form with your details and that of the gift recipient if this is a gift adoption

Once we receive confirmation of the donation and your turtle adoption form, we will issue the adoption certificate with details about the sea turtle to you (or the gift recipient). Please allow 7 days for the issuing of the certificate.

Your kind donation and symbolic turtle adoption will help us continue our sea turtle conservation work and research of the sea turtle population in Kenya and in the Indian Ocean. This research will, in turn, help us develop and evaluate conservation strategies aimed at saving sea turtles threatened by extinction.
