Thank you Nature's Valley Trust for all your support and assistance with our conservation programs. Well done Bruno and Tiffany! #CousineIsland #Conservation #TurtleSeasonA quick update from our two interns Tiffany O'Brien and Bruno Mels who are slogging in the Seychelles at present. It is peak turtle nesting season, so both are heavily involved in assisting James McClelland and Becky Dawn Hodgkiss, conservation managers at Cousine Island - Seychelles with the meticulous and important work they do. Each nest laid is monitored closely from the moment the female starts digging to lay. Every egg laid is counted, and where there is a high risk of flooding or predation, nests ar gently relocated into a safe nursery area. Adults are checked for tags, and tagged if not already marked.

As each nest hatches, the hatchlings are counted, assessed, and gently released for their first trip down to the ocean! NVT is super proud to be associated with such amazing work! Here are some pics of Bruno and Tiffany working on Hawksbill Turtle nests.
