Marine Litter: What a load of rubbish!

Marine litter – human-created waste accidentally or deliberately dumped into the ocean – is a massive problem. Now, with new knowledge emerging about the impacts of plastics on environmental and human health, marine litter has jumped up on the global environmental agenda.  “In my opinion, small island states such as Seychelles are again, as with climate change, victims because much of the waste comes from other countries and from ships flagged to other nations,” says Dr. Nirmal Shah, Nature Seychelles’ CEO.

Celebrating Athina Antoine, a Seychelloise woman in marine science

After a long hiatus and what she considers a stranding on land, Athina, our water-loving Reef Rescuer was back in the embracing depths of the ocean as part of monitoring activities for the Cousin Island Special Reserve marine protected area (MPA). As today is International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we highlight the work Athina is doing to inspire the next generation.
