Innovative conservation action funded

An exciting new project will deliver new and innovative results for Seychelles conservation areas. Nature Seychelles this week signed a grant agreement for financial support to carry out activities under the project that will strengthen current approaches to protected areas.

Praise for Cousin carbon neutral status

Seychelles President James Alix Michel has congratulated Nature Seychelles on the work it has undertaken, which has resulted in Cousin Island Special Reserve becoming the world's 1st carbon neutral nature reserve. Cousin's new carbon neutral status was launched by Nirmal Shah, Nature Seychelles Chief Executive on 27 September 2010 at the opening of the Tourism Expo 2010 organised by the Seychelles Tourism Board in Victoria, to celebrate tourism and biodiversity during World Tourism Day and week.

EnvironMentor Program imparts job skills

Cousin Island Special Reserve  is  very popular with students who visit it and also work there. It is a conservation classroom - where students learn about biodiversity and its importance. It is also a place for students preparing  to join the workforce in various capacities to gain experience. In the recent past students from the maritime and tourism colleges have spent time on the island, on official school arranged internships and as volunteers. They become part of Nature Seychelles EnvironMentor Program that takes on board young Seychellois and gives them life and work skills through on the job learning.
