Return of the Seychelles Warbler

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 unspectacular but unique bird. Much has been done by BirdLife International to save the species. 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 the species.

Making waves at Oceans Forum

Nature Seychelles is one of the longest-standing members of the Global Ocean Forum, and we were among the representatives at the Ocean Policy Summit held in Lisbon, Portugal in October 2005. The summit brought together high-level officials, regional organisations, UN agencies, ocean policy specialists, donors, non-government organisations and industry. Participants compared experience from around the world on the formulation and implementation of ocean policies, and best practice.

Marine Science Symposium

The Western Indian Ocean Marine & Science Association or WIOMSA was formed in 1994. Since then it has become a major force in the region for capacity development, scientific exchange and lobbying on marine issues. At the core of the Association is its support for scientific research to generate management outcomes in the region.

Seychelles environmental magazine hits the streets

The bi-yearly environmental magazine Zwazo produced by Nature Seychelles and covering the period July to December 2005 has been released. A public service is offered through free copies to key sections of society. Members, wildlife clubs, government agencies, private companies, NGOs, libraries and international and regional organisations have already received copies of this colorful and information-packed publication.

Bird Flu Spreads: The Chicken is the world’s number one migratory species

The outbreak on a large commercial chicken farm in Nigeria is the first reported outbreak of “bird flu” in Africa and a serious development in the continuing spread of the H5N1 virus. Experts believe the bird flu arrived in Nigeria through infected chickens brought into the country in defiance of Nigeria’s import controls. This was admitted recently by Nigeria’s agriculture Minister Adamu Bello.
