Poaching – why does it still happen?

Nature Seychelles has worked with researcher Louisa Wood of the University of British Columbia, Canada and other organisations to find out what motivates illegal fishing in Marine Protected Areas, (MPAs) and to try to identify ways to reduce poaching.

Katiti take-off at airport
In September we reported in the media that a pair of Seychelles Kestrels (Katiti) had taken up residence in an aircraft hangar at the airport. Don Du Preez, who works there, called us for advice, as there were plans to renovate the roof, and he was anxious to minimise disturbance to the birds.

Action for frogs in Seychelles

Seychelles is home to four different unique species of Sooglossid  frogs, although there are large gaps in our knowledge of these species. They are very tiny, and hard to find. Nature Seychelles wants to initiate survey work to find out where the frogs are, how many there are, and how they are faring on Mahe.

Seabird study to reveal health of oceans

Nature Seychelles is working on a long-term study of the life cycles of seabirds in the Western Indian Ocean. The diet, growth-rate, body condition, breeding success and population sizes of seabirds are all useful indicators of the overall health of the marine environment. Seabirds are 'barometers' of change.
