Seychelles Curieuse Island Conservation

Seychelles Curieuse Island Conservation

Summary

Many Islands in the Seychelles have a rich conservation history and high quality wildlife experiences, attracting many tourists and generating significant revenue to the economy but due to past human activity, habitats have been sadly been degraded. Working with the local authorities and community members we prepare to train and provide the resources for locals to track, monitor and research the changing environment to help influence protection decisions and change local policy.

Challenge

We have been operating since 2007, with a remit to provide scientific monitoring data to inform sustainable management. The Seychelles authorities rely heavily on the data collected by our project in its decision making. National parks are visited frequently for the wildlife experience, generating revenue for the economy. Scientific monitoring is crucial for the sustainability of activities to effectively rehabilitate habitats. This data is essential to the Island protection.

Solution

We run around eight scientific monitoring programs within the local community on multiple Islands. Each of these programs requires significant input of resources and equipment and there is little funding or support on the local Islands. Our project is essential to providing outreach, training and resources to build a network of local sustainable researchers and data collectors to help protect the eco-systems of the Islands

Long-Term Impact

Building the resources and training for local people to tackle the issues locally. We aim to leave this project fully equipped with locals trained and sharing their experience and training with others within the community to ensure they tackle the global issues they face within the Seychelles
