CURIEUSE CONSERVATION IN THE SEYCHELLES
Global Vision International (GVI) offers volunteering programs in 13 countries, many of which are aligned to the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. One of the best locations to merge voluntourism with tropical island heaven is the Seychelles. There are a number of programs in this paradise, all operated from Curieuse Island. One program focuses on ensuring the long-term survival of sickle fin lemon sharks, hawksbill and green turtles. Spend time on the stunning island of Curieuse while you contribute to vital conservation efforts to preserve some of the islands’ most important species. Work toward ensuring the long-term survival of both the sickle fin lemon shark as well as the hawksbill and green turtles. Volunteers will stay on the research station on the island and will take part in the lemon shark catch-and-release program, as well as gathering data on shark pups. Participants will also study the nesting success and habits of both hawksbill and green turtles. Other programs are also available, including some for qualified scuba divers.
