Turtle season is organized chaos


Another year, another turtle season come and gone on Cousin Island Special Reserve. Turtle season is organized chaos. It is nonstop beach patrols from sunrise to sunset come rain or shine. There is no other experience quite like working a full turtle season in the Seychelles which is very different from any other place I have been stationed, not to mention on Cousin Island which is especially unique. Nowhere else in the world do sea turtles consistently nest throughout the day.

The environment can kill or heal you

“In 2012, an estimated 12.6 million deaths globally were attributable to the environment. The air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, and the ecosystems which sustain us are estimated to be responsible for 23 per cent of all deaths worldwide.”

What would you do if your home garden was destroyed?

I want you to imagine having a vegetable garden in your home, and you get your daily portion of veggies from this garden. But one day, a storm or a pest comes and kills most of your stock. Consequently you are now faced with protecting what is left, restocking or a mix of both. Which option would you choose so you may continue harvesting from your garden?

Winds of Change

Small islands often make great case studies when considering the flow of sediment and it is easy to see the effects that the seasons and the overriding currents associated with them have on the shoreline of Cousin Island, a Special Reserve managed by Nature Seychelles.
