Success Stories

We want more women in conservation

Arriving on Cousin Island Special Reserve, visitors will not fail to notice the enthusiastic group of female wardens who will welcome them to the island. It might be the driver of the boat,  one of the people pushing the boat or the person leading a tour of the island. Now numbering four staff  members, their presence on Cousin is a result of Nature Seychelles actively promoting equal opportunity for both men and women. This is not only reflected in the desk jobs perceived to be easier on women but in field jobs which require both physical and mental competency.  Many of the volunteers who a visitor would meet on the island are also female.
