First-of-its-kind project in Seychelles aims to make local people stewards of marine areas

Nature Seychelles has received €680,000 from the German International Climate Initiative (IKI) for an exciting project that will break new ground for participatory management of coastal and marine resources in Seychelles. The German Ambassador to Seychelles, Her Excellency Mrs. Annett Günther, officially launched the project on 17th September 2019 at the Nature Seychelles' offices at the Sanctuary at Roche Caiman.

Conversations on Conservation

The first half of this year saw much international media attention on Nature Seychelles’ work. A podcast on conservtion-careers.com and a blog on natural science careers interviewing me shone a bright light on the successful work we are doing in training, capacity building and mentoring not only young Seychellois, but through our Conservation Boot Camp (CBC) program, budding conservationists from all over the world.

I fell in love with Hawksbill Turtles on the Conservation Boot Camp

I grew up in Darwin, a small coastal town on Australia's North Coast. My parents had an ecotourism business called Sea Darwin, with the niche being Flatback turtle tours on a remote island in the Arafura Sea. I had been exposed to the nesting behaviours of Flatbacks for nearly 10 years, and that's where my interest in sea turtles started.

Podcast: Mitigating carbon footprints in tourism & transplanting coral with Dr. Nirmal Shah

Nature Seychelles' Chief Executive Dr. Nirmal Shah recently sat down with Emil Walker of Inside the Ride Podcast series to talk about his conservation experiences. Hugely passionate about the environment, especially that of the Seychelles, he has worked over 35 years in environmental conservation. He is an advocate of educating and inspiring the younger generation to learn more about our planet and the magnificent ecosystems that need to be protected.
