Turtles tripping over one another. This is how the turtle team on Cousin Island Special Reserve described the emergence of 5 turtles on Saturday, all trying to nest on just 20 metres of beach at the same time.
It is said that water is the essence of life. There is no doubt that it is abundant during the rainy season.
A unique and immersive experience awaits volunteers at Cousin Island. Their natural surroundings are pristine, and they are surrounded by wildlife. Life on a nature reserve is not without its challenges and limitations, however as some past volunteers shared.
Hawksbill turtle nesting occurs during the day in Seychelles. They are thus vulnerable to disturbances. Taking time to understand and appreciate this process can help in conservation and protection.
Organisations and individuals are raising awareness for the fading beauty beneath the waves by bleaching their logos and sharing bleached coral images.
