Today Newspaper, 9 March 2015: Ms. Henri has been with Nature Seychelles for sixteen years, a non-governmental conservation organisation registered in 1998 and the BirdLife partner in the country. “I couldn’t imagine a better place to work.” says Ms. Henri “It’s the noblest feeling to work on saving a species from extinction.”
Nature Seychelles manages Cousin Island Special Reserve, one of the oldest marine protected areas in Seychelles.
Ms Henri has also been the German Consul in Seychelles for the last eight years. “It was great during the football world cup to see a lot of Seychellois supporting Germany.”
But more importantly she adds: “I am very lucky, I have not yet encountered a situation where my gender affected what I could or could not do in Seychelles.”
