Oceans Alive Trust

Ocean Alive is a team of passionate experienced people with over 4 decades of experience in community based marine resource management. We are centrally based on the Kenya coast in Kuruwitu, Kilifi County, Kenya. We create, connect, catalyse and share coastal Collaborative Management initiatives by working with communities, relevant stakeholders and partners using a 6 step approach. As part of our 5 year strategy we are working with relevant stakeholders and partners to place 270 km of the Kenya coastline in Kilifi County under collaborative management using a unified, participatory and agreed approach. In January 2022, the first Co-Management Plan under the new guidelines was signed by the Director General putting the 12,000 hectare seascape in Kuruwitu under community management.
