How did the first mangroves get here?
P4 students from Takamaka primary school visited The Sanctuary in Roche Caiman, a nature reserve managed by Nature Seychelles, as part of their science lesson to learn more about wildlife. In a two hour tour of the nature reserve, the students got to do some bird watching as well as see fish and crabs and learn about other creatures in the water. One of the students looked around the mangrove forest at The Sanctuary and asked "How did the first mangrove get here?" Robin Hanson, Nature Seychelles' Eco-Health manager then went on to explain how mangrove seeds grow and their benefits as wildlife habitats as well as protection of the environment from extreme weather conditions. The students and their teachers also got to tour the Heritage (organic) Garden which is a demonstration garden for those who wish to have their own edible landscapes at home and grow their own food. The garden falls under Nature Seychelles' Green Health Program.
