Yes, young people are concerned about Seychelles’ Wetlands!

Students mark World Wetlands Day with hands-on activities at the Sanctuary at Roche Caiman

On Monday morning The Sanctuary at Roche Caiman was a hive of activities with nearly fifty students from the International School Seychelles (ISS) working on the site. The students and their teachers were at The Sanctuary to mark World Wetlands Day which is celebrated every year on the 2nd of February. The theme for this year’s World Wetlands Day is ‘Wetlands For Our Future’ and what better way to celebrate it than with the future generation?

Wetlands: Wet, Wild and Weighty

On the 2nd of February, individuals, groups and organisations the world over will be marking World Wetlands Day; Nature Seychelles will not be left out as it runs the only managed urban wetland in Seychelles – The Sanctuary at Roche Caiman. World Wetlands Day is marked on the day of the signing of the Convention on Wetlands in 1971 in the city of Ramsar in Iran.

Say What? Sharks in the water indicate a healthy ecosystem!

In the past few weeks, Nature Seychelles staff working on Cousin Island Special Reserve and in the Reef Rescuers project have sent in interesting reports and photographs of activities going on in the sea. From sightings of sharks devouring a sperm whale, to sting ray pile ups and just the general beauty of the underwater world.

Well done Nature Seychelles, but what trash!

In a recent study by conservation scientists from BirdLife International, International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and Centre d’Ecologie Fonctionnelle et Evolutive (CEFE), findings ranked Seychelles among the five small island states that led in conservation of threatened species worldwide. A great triumph for the country.

Making New Year resolutions greener

Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man - Benjamin Franklin

When the music from countless parties have gone silent and the fireworks to usher in another year have fizzled out, many people vow to be better in one way or another in the New Year. New Year’s resolutions are pondered over and penned down with the hope of improving several aspects of our life, be it personal, at work, at home or in the community we live in.
