Get your hands dirty and your feet wet on the Conservation Boot Camp

Take a tiny nature reserve 29ha in size. Throw in 50 years of conservation success that saved endemic bird species, increased the numbers of hawksbill turtles nesting, and propagated hope in restoring coral reefs. Add a giant sized passion for nature conservation from individuals. Create a program that allows young people to partake in real-life conservation in paradisiacal settings. What you will get is the off the beaten track Conservation Boot Camp (CBC). It happens monthly for a lucky few on Cousin Island Special Reserve, Seychelles.
