Packing my bags and saying goodbye to Mahe, I did not know what was ahead for me. The first time I laid my eyes on Cousin Island, I knew at that moment that a new adventure awaited me. With its golden sand, silver clouds and its crystal clear water. Cousin Island is its own little paradise. I would say its heaven on earth.
The Blue Economy is being heralded as an innovative agenda for setting the pace towards a new Seychelles. As a new development concept, the Blue Economy needs to be unpacked. We need to know what’s under its hood, how it works and how to fuel it.
This morning at 830 am our International Volunteers working on Cousin Island Special Reserve performed the excavation of the nest 519 which was laid just one day before the new year. On Saturday night we encountered adorable baby turtles just close to the volunteers' house, which were a bit confused by the house’s light. Today during the excavation all the eggs that were pre-counted have been found together with a wonderful surviving hatchling.
