Islands and Warblers

Back in the 1960s, the Seychelles Warbler or Timerl Dezil was probably the most endangered bird in the world, with only a handful of birds remaining. Cousin Island, the last place it survived, was purchased primarily to save this unique bird. Much has been done by BirdLife International to save the Warbler. Now, Nature Seychelles has been working with our partners on Denis Island and scientists from the University of East Anglia in the UK and Groningen in the Netherlands on a major project to secure the future of our Warbler.

Cats and small island conservation

Domestic cats have been in the news recently in Europe. Conservationists have been trialling some new techniques to try to limit the depredations of pets and feral cats on different wildlife species. There is no dispute about the volume of wildlife killed by cats, but what is not always clear is the extent to which this results in population declines of the species they are killing. Most species are able to tolerate the impact of this depredation, because they are evolved to cope with it.

Can you spot the masters of disguise?

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 Earth.

Feral pigeons - problems and solutions

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.
