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 towards ensuring the long term survival of both the sicklefin lemon shark as well as the hawksbill and green turtles. Enjoy living at a remote research station on one of the world’s most beautiful islands.
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 beach front 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. Track down shark pups in order to gather valuable data pertaining to population and growth rates on the elusive under studied species.

For 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.

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 productive research development. On your down time climb into a Coco de Mer Palm to gain stunning views out over the bay, explore the diversity of the island discovering the diverse birds that inhabit the area, take in the beauty of the mangroves around the island, and snorkel among the crystal clear water taking in the unique and fragile underwater ecosystems.

Lemon Shark and Turtle Conservation in the Seychelles

Project Life

This project focuses on the preservation of both the lemon sharks and turtles on the island, you will rotate between contributing to research for both species. The majority of work will be done on the beaches and in the mangroves, where you will get the chance to learn and practice various field techniques which vary between the projects.

After working full time during the days you will retire to base with other volunteers and staff on the island. You will share small huts with other volunteers in a dormitory style set up. Evenings are spent enjoying the serenity of the island, relaxing with the other volunteers, and contributing to a range of camp duties.

You should expect to work 5 days each week, Monday to Friday, with weekends free for you to explore the surrounding area, snorkel, dive or just enjoy island living.

Project Details

On this project, you will focus on two key conservation projects within Curieuse Island National Park focusing on lemon sharks and turtles.

Lemon Shark Project
The mangrove system on Curieuse Island is an important nursery ground for the sicklefin lemon shark (Negaprion acutidens). We are conducting a capture and release study of the shark population using P.I.T. tags and acoustic tracking. Presently, very little is known about these creatures and we hope to answer many questions such as what time of the year do they pup, what is the survival and growth rate and in which areas are they found.

Hawksbill Turtle Surveys
Curieuse Island has some of the most important hawksbill turtle nesting beaches within Seychelles. Throughout nesting season, we conduct patrols of the beaches, recording data on nesting turtles and tagging females.

In conjunction with the Seychelles National Parks Authority, you may also find yourself participating in various educational campaigns and activities including mangrove replanting, endemic flora re-vegetation, beach cleans and environmental education classes.

How This Project Makes a Difference

Our partnership with the Seychelles National Parks Authority means that all data collected will be collated into a growing collection of vital research. All data will be passed on the Seychelles Ministry of Environment and various local NGOs. This ensures that all data will be used to inform conservations surrounding local conservation policies and will be furthermore shared with other conservation organizations, teams, and efforts worldwide.

In conjunction with our local partners we are one of the leading marine and terrestrial data and collection organizations in the Seychelles. Our volunteers are essential in helping local organizations execute research projects and data collection initiatives that they do not have the resources to complete on their own.

About Your Location

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.

How Long Should I Volunteer?

Our projects range from 1 week up to approx. 30 weeks. Projects have a specified minimum stay, then it’s up to you how long you can commit. In our experience the longer you stay the more you will gain, as your understanding of the project broadens and you take on more responsibilities. Every volunteer will be given a certificate of appreciation at the end of their stay as a symbol of volunteering stay.

Aktiviteter

Free Time
Volunteering with us not only allows you to participate in programmes assisting disadvantaged communities or endangeredecosystems, but it also offers wonderful opportunities to travel in the local area in your downtime or further afield either before or after your programme. Below is some information on trips and travel options in the Seychelles.

Optional Side Trips
Volunteers may have the opportunity to visit the islands of Praslin and La Digue. Praslin is home to the Vallee de Mai (a world heritage site) thought by early explorers to be the original “Garden of Eden”, that is home of the famous Coco de Mer palm tree that produces the huge double nut famous for its provocative shape. La Digue is the picture perfect tropical island, small and intimate with quaint guest houses and arguably the most beautiful beach in the world - Anse Source d’Argent.

Public transport is cheap and frequent and many parts of Praslin can be explored easily by catching a bus.

Overnatning

Accommodation is in shared (mixed sex) dorm rooms. There is cold running water available for showers and bottled water available for drinking. Bathroom facilities are shared, and participants also share base duties, including cleaning and other chores.You need to bring your own mosquito net and bedding for example a thin sleeping bag liner.

If you need to stay additional nights before or after your project you need to book these separately, ask your travel consultant for help.

Lokal transport

Most volunteers arrange international flights to the Seychelles' main international airport on Mahé Island, arriving on or before the expedition start date. It is highly recommended that you arrive at least a day or two earlier if possible, to recover from jetlag and acclimatise. Most people stay in the village of Beau Vallon which is right on the beach and the main centre for tourism in Mahé with restaurants and shops close by. Note if you plan to stay on other parts of the island you will be required to make your own way to one of the pick-up points. There will be one airport pick-up the day before the start of the expedition at 07:30, which will drop off in Beau Vallon. On the morning of the expedition the pick-up point will be at the car park behind the Pearl Noire restaurant in Beau Vallon at 09:30. Please ensure field staff are aware of your arrival plans.

Departures can be planned from late afternoon onwards, as the ferry leaves to Mahe quite early between 08:00 and 09:00 it takes 1 hour by ferry to Mahe, and then 30 to 40 mins to the airport by taxi.

Måltider

Meals while on project are included. Participants take turns to prepare meals for the group. Food is basic but nutritious, and primarily vegetarian with optional fish or meat available no more than once or twice a week. Breakfast could be porridge with fresh fruit, or occassionally pancakes or cereal, lunch and evening meals may include pasta, beans, rice, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, etc.

Vær venligst opmærksom på

You will have access to long distance communications whilst on the program, but make sure friends and family know how often they can expect to hear from you. Participants typically use internet cafes to keep in touch, with access to internet about once a week. Local SIM cards and pay-as-you-go credit can be bought affordably in the Seychelles and the signal is good in most areas. Contact your mobile/cell phone provider for more information before travelling.
