Too salty for my garden: Salt intrusion from Climate Change will affect agriculture in Seychelles

People are often surprised and equally delighted by the organic produce that comes from our Heritage Garden at Roche Caiman. This small garden on reclaimed land yields a bountiful harvest of vegetables such as egg-plant, cucumber, okra, tomatoes, chillies, lettuce, pumpkin, various herbs and spices, food crops such as banana, sweet potatoes and cassava, and a variety of tree seedlings of many locally used fruit and medicinal plants such as bitter leaf, aloe vera and neem.

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.
