Come help us save wildlife! Join the Conservation Boot Camp, a unique and exclusive program based on Cousin Island Special Reserve a multiple award winning and world renowned nature reserve in Seychelles.
Nature Seychelles has received €680,000 from the German International Climate Initiative (IKI) for an exciting project that will break new ground for participatory management of coastal and marine resources in Seychelles. The German Ambassador to Seychelles, Her Excellency Mrs. Annett Günther, officially launched the project on 17th September 2019 at the Nature Seychelles' offices at the Sanctuary at Roche Caiman.
The 50 years of conservation success witnessed on Cousin Island Special Reserve have created a legacy that is delivering multiple benefits for nature and people locally and globally, the BirdLife International Regional Director for Africa, Ademola Ajagbe has said.
The first half of this year saw much international media attention on Nature Seychelles’ work. A podcast on conservtion-careers.com and a blog on natural science careers interviewing me shone a bright light on the successful work we are doing in training, capacity building and mentoring not only young Seychellois, but through our Conservation Boot Camp (CBC) program, budding conservationists from all over the world.
I grew up in Darwin, a small coastal town on Australia's North Coast. My parents had an ecotourism business called Sea Darwin, with the niche being Flatback turtle tours on a remote island in the Arafura Sea. I had been exposed to the nesting behaviours of Flatbacks for nearly 10 years, and that's where my interest in sea turtles started.
