Who We Work With


Local Ocean Conservation Kenya
Local Ocean Conservation is a grassroots marine conservation project, based in Watamu, Kenya. The project uses marine turtles as a flagship indicator species to measure and improve ocean and coastal health. Home to East Africa’s only Marine Turtle Rehabilitation Centre, LOC has been a pioneer for marine turtle and marine conservation along the Kenyan Coast over the past 20 years.
Endangered marine turtles are an extremely important ocean flagship and indicator species, since they use every facet of the ocean and rely on the coastline for nesting. They connect us to the magical underwater world, and to fisher communities on land whose livelihoods depend on the ocean.
As a grassroots project, Local Ocean works closely with local fisher and women’s groups to bring about sustainable behavioural change at community level which results in communities protecting marine turtles and ocean habitats, based on their own social, economic, and cultural interests and values.


The Mayhew logo named charity Galago Joe



Mayhew is an animal welfare charity working from their hub in London and overseas. They rescue hundreds of cats and dogs every year, provide veterinary care to thousands, and deliver community projects that improve the lives of both animals and people across the globe.

They began life as an animal home and shelter in 1886, but they are so much more than that now. They continue to improve animal welfare through their rescue and rehoming initiatives, but this isn’t their sole focus.

They are passionate about tackling the root causes of animal abandonment and neglect, as well as supporting vulnerable pet owners to stay with their companion animal. They run a number of truly unique programmes aiming to reduce the number of animals in need.

Galago Joe The Gorilla Organization charity


The Gorilla Organization

Gorillas in the wild need protection. Inspired by the work of Dr Dian Fossey, who lost her life in the battle to save them, The Gorilla Organization’s African staff have worked for more than 30 years to protect gorillas with a holistic range of projects including conservation, research, education and sustainable development.

Gorillas, like humans, need their homes. And the forests that they survive in must be protected for them to thrive. So the Gorilla Organization has planted nearly two million trees adjacent to the gorilla parks to alleviate pressure on the habitat and help in the global fight against climate change.

The Democratic Republic of the Congo, DRC, has suffered years of civil war and much of its once luscious forest is now a lawless wilderness. The mountains of Itombwe and the Community Gorilla Forest of Walikale are home to isolated populations of Grauer’s Gorillas protected by the Gorilla Organization’s rangers. Removing poachers’ traps and negotiating with warlords and illegal miners are all in a day’s work for the highly motivated and extremely brave rangers.

The Gorilla Organization has a great portfolio of positive development projects for people living near the gorillas – so it no longer makes economic sense to be a poacher when you can feed and educate your family thanks to the expertise and investment in training - in such things as bee-keeping and organic farming - made possible by Gorilla Organization’s supporters.

Gorillas are not natural swimmers but if they were we’re sure they’d love these shorts!
