The Kenya Wildlife Service is drawing up a strategic management plan to protect dolphins along the coastal line. The three-year programme will come up with statistics of dolphins through surveys.
Dickson Korir, a Watamu Marine National Park warden, says viewing dolphins has become one of the major tourist attractions in Watamu.
Speaking after a survey of dolphins by KWS scientists and the Watamu Marine Association on Wednesday, he said the plan will be implemented along the ocean from Vanga to Lamu.
Korir said dolphins have increased the number of tourists by 10 per cent annually for the past three years. KWS has been working with Watamu Marine Association to help conserve dolphins.
