In honour of World Ocean’s day on the 8th June, we are bringing you a very special island style broadcast from the island paradise of the Seychelles. All life on this group of tropical islands is supported by the warm waters of the surrounding Indian Ocean, and is home to a wide variety of incredible plants and animals.
http://en.seyvillas.com/guide/flora-fauna/fauna Uninhabited until the 18th century, the Seychelles are home to many animal species that have since long disappeared in the rest of the world. The giant tortoises and the wide variety of rare birds are definitely two protagonists of the Seychelles' fauna.
to visit the amazing seychelles was a long year dream of mine. in january 2016 after long preparation work my journey to these paradise islands finally started. i travelled with my good friend uttam pegu from india and here you see,what happened on our tour in the first days.as i have never seen any wildlife film of the seychelles and found it very difficult to find out,which species are there and where they are found,so i did not intend to make just short summary films here,but pay more attention to a good description of the endemics we found here. Regarding this film i like to give my special thanks to the ones involved here,that made my trip possible and enjoyable: Claire and Dimitry to host us as well as their friend.All cared really well for us! Perly constance,one of the funniest b...
www.wildimagesonline.com - Wildlife and bird photography on Cousine Island, Seychelles. If someone asked me what is my favorite place on the planet it would be hard to single out any one place but Cousine Island in the Seychelles would certainly be high on my list. Cousine is a small island just off the coast of Praslin and is a combination luxury resort and private nature reserve. Like most islands its natural fauna and flora had been decimated by the introduction of alien plants and cats. In 1992 the island was purchased and a conservation programme introduced to protect nesting sea turtles and maintain existing populations of endemic land birds including the Seychelles Magpie Robin, the Seychelles Warbler and the Seychelles Fody. Feral cats had been present on the island but were era...

This is a list of the "mammal species recorded in the Seychelles". Theee are the mammal species in the Seychelles, of which 2 are critically endangered, 0 are endangered, 2 are vulnerable, and 0 are near-threatened. Some species were assessed using an earlier set of criteria. Species assessed using this system have the following instead of Near Threatened and Least Concern categories: ---- Sirenia is an order of fully aquatic, herbivorous mammals that inhabit rivers, estuaries, coastal marine waters, swamps, and marine wetlands. All four species are endangered. ---- The bats' most distinguishing feature is that their forelimbs are developed as wings, making them the only mammals in the world naturally capable of flight. Bat species account for about 20% of all mammals. Wi...
A new UN report says oceans make up the seventh largest economy in the world. And have the ability to generate at least 2 point 5 trillion dollars a year in what's described as a Gross Marine Product - the equivalent of a country's Gross Domestic Product. Africa's ocean - or blue - economy is estimated at three times the size of its landmass, yet African governments are not embracing this potential. Delegates are meeting in Seychelles this week to find ways to harness this potential...http://owl.li/OCpdu For more News visit: http://www.sabc.co.za/news Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SABCNewsOnline?lang=en Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SABCNewsOnline

There s limited internet access in the seychelles,so most people that live there are not often online.

Pls beware the volume of my film once we reached the top of mount copolia,it was very windy a...

The day after my first encounter with a whale shark, my fellow divers met three of these peaceful and majestic animals in the same waters - and they had a videocamera. This is a wonderful memory of what we have seen. Dedicated to the oceans and those with enough brain and heart to love and protect them.
To help save the Coco de Mer, a giant type of coconut that weighs up to 30 kilos, the UN Development Program is assisting the Seychelles in finding ways to ensure that it has the necessary funding.

The Seychelles is an island paradise in the Indian Ocean that is seeking ways to protect its biodiversity. A high proportion of the flora and fauna are unique to the archipelago. Maintaining the natural world costs money, and the Biodiversity Financing Initiative of the UN Development Program is involved in finding ways to ensure that the necessary funds are available.
