Sea turtles worldwide face endangerment due to pollution, poachers, fishing bycatch, beachfront development, and much more. Off the coast of Kenya, the Lamu Marine Conservation Trust (LAMCOT) works to mitigate these threats through educational programs and incentives for fishermen.

LAMCOT project coordinator Salim Hohamed Atwaa will join us on the National Mall this summer to represent the organization and other conservation efforts in the Kenya: Mambo Poa program at the 2014 Smithsonian Folklife Festival.

Mucky Secrets (full) - The Marine Conserving Kenya's Coast, One Turtle 1 day ago   1:32:25

"Mucky Secrets" is a documentary about the marine life of the Lembeh Strait at the heart of the Coral Triangle off north Sulawesi in Indonesia. The DVD is available at http://www.bubblevision.com/underwater-videos/Lembeh/Mucky-Secrets.htm

The Lembeh Strait is a popular scuba diving destination, famed for its excellent "muck diving". A huge diversity of exotic marine creatures can be found on the mucky seabed, including everything from tropical fish to benthic sharks to nudibranchs. Critters compete for survival with an armoury including camouflage, mimicry, toxicity, and dazzling coloration.

"Mucky Secrets" is an excellent resource for scuba divers, aquarists, and marine biology students. The documentary features underwater macro footage from many of Lembeh's famous dive sites including Critter Hunt, Police Pier, Tanjung Kusu-Kusu, Nudi Falls, Aer Perang, Jahir, Makawide, Nudi Retreat, Retak Larry, TK (Teluk Kembahu), Hairball and Aw Shucks.

There are subtitles/CC tracks for the narration and for the scientific and common names of the marine species, and dive site names.

Thanks to:
- Two Fish Divers (http://twofishdivers.com) who I stayed and dived with on Lembeh Island, and especially to their keen-eyed dive guides for their critter spotting
- Phiangpis Phanchana for diving and production assistance
- Gerry Allen and Teresa Zubi (http://starfish.ch) for assistance with marine species identification
- Bill Rudman for creating the now-idle sea slug forum (http://seaslugforum.net), still an invaluable source of knowledge.

The video was shot by Nick Hope with a Sony HVR-Z1P HDV camera in a Light & Motion Bluefin HD housing with Light & Motion Elite lights, a flat port, and a Century +3.5 diopter.
