School environmental representatives – teachers who are the focal points for environment in schools – from Mahe, Praslin, La Digue and Silhouette took part recently in a half-day visit to Cousin island, a world-famous bird reserve.
Cousin Island Special Reserve has become the first IBA - Important Bird Area - branded site in the Seychelles and the Western Indian Ocean region. The IBA branding states publicly that Cousin island is of outstanding value for bird conservation. IBAs are sites of global importance for birds and their conservation, defined and listed by BirdLife International, the world authority on birds.
