Sink or swim: Exploring the mangroves of Port Glaud

Known for their salt-tolerant trees and intricate root networks, mangroves thrive in harsh and ever-changing environments. They shelter unique flora and fauna. Their extensive roots stabilize coastlines, mitigate erosion, and protect us from storm surges. Besides being carbon sinks, they also purify water by filtering pollutants and trapping sediment and reduce flooding by absorbing excess rainwater.

A window into another world: 9 things our turtle volunteers love

Cousin Island Special Reserve offers one of the most immersive turtle conservation programs in the world. As one of the most vital nesting sites for Hawksbill turtles in the western Indian Ocean, the island has monitored these majestic creatures since the 1970s. Every year, Nature Seychelles invites volunteers to help with the labour-intensive program. Here, we highlight the top 9 things volunteers appreciate about their experience during turtle nesting season.
