Mangroves and more: A Volunteer's experience of Seychelles

Italian student Giulia Campanile is volunteering with Nature Seychelles for one month. As part of her work, she assists the NGO's LEAP (Locally Empowered Area Protection) team based at Cap Ternay with survey work in the Ramsar-designated wetland and mangroves. The following is her account of her time thus far.

Tracking sea turtles and the threats they face

It’s Hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata, Kare) nesting season once again. Several islands have reported nesting activities on beaches as females crawl up onto land to nest. After a false start in August, Cousin Island had its first egg-laying female - another untagged female - in September.
