Seychelles Island Research & Conservation

  • 29Day(s)
  • Trip Code: STGVISEY

Join a team of international volunteers on stunning Curieuse Island, and assist the local government with crucial wildlife and terrestrial conservation projects. It's not all flopping about on paradise beaches however (that's what the weekends are for) so come with your sleeves rolled up and ready for plenty of demanding physical activity in hot climes. Working in forests and on the beach, you'll help with giant tortoise habitat management, turtle nesting research, bird monitoring and National Park conservation. On weekends, explore your postcard perfect surroundings. Discover coral reefs, the stunning islands of Praslin and Vallee de Mai, or head to Victoria - the world's smallest capital city - for local markets and a spot of shopping.

Volunteering Project Overview

Based on the tropical island of Curieuse, you'll be working alongside the Seychelles government and local NGOs to conserve some of the world's most adorable species. Most days will start early with a short briefing to get you fully prepared for the day. You'll then be transferred to the project site where you can get stuck into the day's activities. These may include tortoise conservation, turtle nesting research, in-water turtle surveys, endangered bird monitoring, habitat management, wildlife rehabilitation and more. All relevant training will be provided. The data you collect during the day will need to be reviewed and inputted into the database. Once all this is done, the team get together to unwind, eat and socialise. Fridays are usually half days so strap on your dancing shoes and crank up those iPod speakers. There'll also be plenty of free time to trip to the beautiful islands of Mahe and Praslin, explore the Creole culture of the Seychelles, and live the true castaway existence.
