Naval officers volunteer at wetland sanctuary

Naval officers from HMS Monmouth, a British Royal Naval ship, on Friday helped Nature Seychelles in maintenance work at the reserve, the Sanctuary at Roche Caiman. Managed by Nature Seychelles since 2002, this 2.9 ha wetland is home to  a varied list of plants and animals. Nature Seychelles has undertaken extensive restoration on the site, which resulted from reclamation work in the 80s, in order to enhance the pre-existing habitats and to create additional habitats. As result the reserve is a popular outdoor learning and relaxation area.
