High­lights

Living on a remote and stunningly beautiful national park on islands that most only dream of visiting (if they have even heard of them at all)
Working alongside knowledgeable and dedicated national partners provides invaluable insight into the life and work of conservationists
Joining in on the work being done helps individual volunteers gain both hard and soft skills essential to research development and data collection
Climbing into a Coco de Mer palm to gain stunning views out over the bay
Exploring the diversity of the island and discovering the birds that inhabit the area, taking in the beauty of the mangroves around the island, and snorkeling among the crystal clear water.
Spend time on the stunning island of Curieuse while you contribute to vital conservation efforts to preserve some of the islands most important species. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Leeftijd 18+
Alleenstaanden
Koppels
The project is based on Curieuse Island - a true tropical paradise. The entire island is a national park which is managed by our local partner, Seychelles National Parks Authority. Live on the beachfront on the white sand beaches of Anse St Jose in small huts, inviting the natural environment into every aspect of your daily experience. Across the bay is Seychelles’ second largest island, Praslin, which is a quick boat ride away.

Spend your time learning about and contributing to critical conservation efforts being conducted on the island. Join an international team of passionate volunteers and qualified experts who are all dedicated to make a difference towards the survival of both the critically endangered hawksbill turtles and the sicklefin lemon sharks.

Partake in our lemon shark catch and release program. Search the surrounding waters for shark pups in order to gather valuable data pertaining to population and growth rates on the elusive under studied species.

Sea turtles efforts will center around studying the nesting success and habits of both hawksbill and green turtles on the island. Collect and collate information such as tag numbers, carapace (shell) measurements and number of eggs laid, or carry out nest evacuations to measure hatching success rates.

Dagelijkse activiteiten

-Live within a National Park on a tropical island, where giant tortoises outnumber people. 

-Collect data on endangered and endemic species with a focus on turtles and sharks; ensuring their continued, or enhanced protection in the Seychelles. 

-Experience hands on research with sea turtles, lemon sharks, Coco de Mer and juvenile giant tortoises, and mangroves (when in season), and contribute to the management and improvement of the National Park. 

-Return from the field work and take a dip in the warm, clear Indian Ocean. 

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

You will be based in and around national parks in the main group of islands, and working on a diverse range of wildlife and habitats on and around Curieuse Island. Access to and from the island is only by boat so travel to other islands is limited to weekends. Praslin has a limited, cheap bus service and taxis are easily available. For further exploration you may choose to hire a car on Praslin or make use of the inter-island ferry services between the other islands. In your down time you will be free to travel in the local area and can expect one or two free days per week, usually at weekends. In this time you could explore the islands of Praslin or La Digue, visit the capital of Mahé, Victoria (although the ferry to Mahe is relatively expensive), visit local beaches, snorkel or just relax on base. Before and after your program you could spend a little more time in the Seychelles on the close-by islands of Praslin and La Digue, or join a charter to sail even further afield. Please allow several days if you hope to travel between islands, there are over 100 in the archipelago but getting around takes time – the possibilities are endless!
