Nature Seychelles is calling on the public to help with improving
knowledge of a unique Seychelles animal - the weird and wonderful
Seychelles chameleon (kameleon). The conservation body is seeking to
enthuse and excite citizens about the natural environment, especially
in finding out more about animals and plants found nowhere else on
The Seychelles Kestrel or Katiti breeding season is in full swing. You
may have noticed these charismatic little falcons being more vocal and
more conspicuous in your neighbourhood.
Feral pigeons or pizons domestik have been hitting the headlines this
week. A flock of them had been causing a nuisance at the National
Library since the building was constructed. They were gathering in
numbers on the roof, and making a lot of noise and mess. Happily for
the library, the delinquent pigeons have been moved on, following the
installation of special spikes that discourage them from perching. The
problem has been solved at a local level – for the library – but has
been moved on to somewhere else. It hasn’t gone away.
Nature Seychelles and the Wildlife Clubs of Seychelles have received a
boost to their activities. The US Embassy has agreed to provide project
funds to the two conservation bodies, both based at the Centre for
Environment and Education situated at Roche Caiman.
