#KENYALIVE to showcase Mara night safaris

KENYA, Watamu: In a photograph taken by Make It Kenya 11 Decmeber 2015, a Green turtle makes it's way back to the ocean from a deserted stretch of coastline after being released by a team from the Local Ocean Trust (LOT). The LOT and Watamu Turtle Watch work to protect both the future of sea turtles and the wider fragile marine environment along Kenya's Watamu stretch of coastline through nest-monitoring and protection of turtle nesting sites, practising a catch and release programme working closely with local fisherman who inadvertently catch sea turtles in the nets, and conservation education and awareness outreach with local communities.

In a recent development, Kenya’s wildlife is set to be showcased with two world firsts in a series of live web broadcasts using new state-of–the-art technology.

#KenyaLive will enable people to witness excitement of a night safari in the Mara as well as Kenya’s coastal underwater treasures in real time.

Building on the success of #MaraLive – the world’s first live web broadcast of the great wildebeest migration – Make It Kenya has once again partnered with HerdTracker to use a combination of the innovative filming technology.

The first of the live broadcasts will offer an unprecedented view of the lions in the Olare Motorogi and Naboisho Conservancies of the Maasai Mara. It will also showcase off-road game drives, fly camping, night game drive safaris as well as walking safaris.

The team will also be in the coastal town of Watamu to host live broadcasts of the Watamu Turtle Watch project, including the world’s first live underwater broadcasts.
