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.
Come help us save wildlife! Join the Conservation Boot Camp, a unique and exclusive program based on Cousin Island Special Reserve a multiple award winning and world renowned nature reserve in Seychelles.
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.
The 50 years of conservation success witnessed on Cousin Island Special Reserve have created a legacy that is delivering multiple benefits for nature and people locally and globally, the BirdLife International Regional Director for Africa, Ademola Ajagbe has said.
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.
