MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE INDIAN OCEAN

ABOUT THE SEYCHELLES

The Seychelles is a country made up of 155 islands in the Indian Ocean at the eastern end of the Somali Sea. Nearby island countries and territories include the Comoros, Madagascar and Mauritius, among other French regions. Of the main environmental challenges facing Seychelles is the lack of flat land for development, as well as problems with water supply and sewage disposal. Despite this, Seychelles is one of the world’s leading countries in the protection of habitats for endangered species, with 42% of its territory allocated to conservation. Thanks to its efforts, the country is known for its success in protecting its flora and fauna. Despite huge disparities between nations, Seychelles claims to have achieved almost all of its Millennium Development Goals. 

Our local ally from BlueCommunities is SEYNOPLASTIC, a local NGO dedicated to bring awareness about plastic and the change of habits around the island.
