Helping hands for endangered turtles

As I approached, Chris Tagg, our conservation officer, was shovelling sand out of a hole. "Did he finally snap?" I wondered. I knew he hadn’t had a wink of sleep as some of us had been up until 3 am the previous night waiting for a Green turtle (Chelonia mydas, Torti d'Mer in Creole) to nest.

Meet the "Dynamic Duo" who raised funds for conservation on Cousin Island Special Reserve

Nature Seychelles has made two women from the Netherlands - Janet Mulder and Nancy Willekens - “Friends of Cousin Island". This is an accolade that honours individuals who have made exemplary contributions to the special reserve. Janet and Nancy were recognized for organizing a fundraising campaign to conserve Hawksbill turtles and Aldabra giant tortoises. A third woman, Krista Kuijers, was also acknowledged for contributing to the campaign on a regular basis.

Why you should try birdwatching

Birdwatching may not be for everyone, but it's enjoyed by many. In Seychelles, locals and tourists alike go out to see endemic and native land birds, seabirds, migrant birds, and vagrants. Here are some reasons why you should give it a try.
