Fourth Estate at work

The power of the press paid dividends for the cause of conservation this week as a mass-media outcry over a theft from the Roche Caiman Sanctuary led to a police tip-off, an arrest and the recovery of the stolen goods.

Seychellois expert on international task force

Dr. Nirmal Jivan Shah of Nature Seychelles has been appointed a member of a new international Task Force on Protected Areas. The Task Force is a joint initiative of the World Commission on Protected Areas and the Commission on Environmental Law.

Minor theft, major problem

The success of a three year € 200,000 conservation project has been left in the balance after the theft of 60 metres of standard issue green chain link fencing. The fence was cut out of the 700 metre boundary of the Nature Seychelles-managed Roche Caiman Sanctuary, a small fresh water wetland area, just two kilometres from Seychelles’ capital Victoria, which is nearing the end of a three year restoration project.
