Justin Kitsao the WMA chair returns from the Ocean's Capacity Building Symposium in Japan talking rubbish and recycling in Watamu Kenya
It's another exciting first for Watamu Marine Association as we return form Japan's international symposium "International Symposium on Capacity Building for Sustainable Oceans" organised by the Japanese Ministry for Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, in collaboration with The Nature Conservancy, and hosted by the Nippon Foundation.
Justin proved to be a huge success charming the delegates with his patriotic flag of Kenya and was a firm favorite. Together with Arthur Tuda Kenya Wildlife Service's Assistant Director for the coast the Kenyan team made a great impression at thesymposium, with many friends in conservation made and ideas exchanged. So much so Mr Tuda appointed himself as Justin's bodyguard
This prestigious invitation extended to Watamu Marine Association will mean that our innovative ideas will be shared with other ground breaking organisations from around the world in respect to issues such as ocean education, fisheries, marine and coastal planning, climate change adaptation, and multi-stakeholder networks.
Our action chair Justin Kitsao will represent Watamu Kenya in a presentation to the international audience. Check out the website International Symposium on Capacity Building for Sustainable Oceans Japan
Together we can make a difference to the world's oceans!
