Christopher Mahoune: An incurable wildlife shutterbug

"Stunning image!" "Fantastische Aufnahme" "Avant de voir le nom je savais que la photo venait de Christopher!!! Magnifique!" "My favourite!" These are the reactions you will often see whenever a photo taken by Christopher Mahoune are posted on our Facebook page. Christopher, or Topher as he is known to us, is a senior warden on Cousin Island Special Reserve.

A new and groundbreaking arrangement for marine protection formalized in Seychelles

Protected areas in Seychelles have usually been managed by government entities such as the Seychelles National Parks Authority and conservation NGOs such as Nature Seychelles. Locally managed or community-based protected areas don’t exist unlike in other countries in the region. Now, in an exciting turnaround, local people can get involved in managing Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) for the first time. This highly innovative project will involve the local communities around the Port Launay and Baie Ternay Marine National Parks through a co-management process that officially kicked off on 3rd December 2020 at Port Launay Beach.

Keep calm, we are saving corals!

It's been 10 years since Nature Seychelles made a splash in the local waters with the launch of its ground-breaking and game-changing Reef Rescuers project. Based on Praslin Island and working in the Cousin Island Special Reserve, the project sought to restore coral reefs damaged by climate-change induced coral bleaching.
