A Turtle called Green

The Green turtle (Chelonia mydas, Torti-d-mer in Creole) rarely nests on Cousin Island Special Reserve. Between July and August, small numbers appear sporadically.

1st High-tech Project for Nature Conservation in Seychelles

Nature Seychelles has bagged support from Huawei Technologies to improve conservation through the use of novel technology. A new project titled 'Next-Gen Conservation: Applying and sharing lessons in the use of technology and digital-based solutions for the island and coastal conservation management' has received a grant of USD 200,000.

Murder and Mayhem in the animal kingdom

"Nature red in tooth and claw" is a saying attributed to the English poet, Tennyson. It describes the at times violent nature of animals. We don't have the bloody animal drama often depicted on National Geographic TV shows here in Seychelles. Not on land, at least. But we see our share of fighting and killing worthy of a mention. Here are a few from Cousin Island.

Night crawlers - Counting shearwaters in the dark

If you happened to be by the hill at night last week on Cousin Island, you would have heard a strange wail that sounds something like this, 'a-wooo-aaaa, 'a-wooo-aaaa'. It resounds all over this area in rock cavities and burrows. Sometimes it rises to a cacophony. For the uninitiated, it can be quite frightening. In fact, it was once associated with ghosts in the old days.
