The primary objective of Nature Seychelles according to its statutes is to improve the conservation of biodiversity through scientific, management, educational and training programmes.
The Association shall achieve its objectives through affiliations, amongst others, with individuals as well as local, national, regional and international institutions engaged in the process of environmental conservation.

The SFA is encouraging local scientists to take an active part in the forum, which is purely marine science-based. Presentations on topics such as fisheries conservation, turtles and whale shark research, as well as research on coastal and climate change issues, will be welcome, it says.

Coral reefs bleaching to death

Coral reefs around the world have been severely damaged by unusually warm ocean temperatures.

Coral reefs are extremely important for biodiversity, providing a home to over 25% of all marine life. They are also vital for people and business. They provide nurseries for many species of commercially important fish, protection of coastal areas from storm waves, and are a significant attraction for the tourism industry.
However, coral reefs are very fragile sensitive ecosystems that can only tolerate a narrow temperature range.

The islands and Global Warm
The Seychelles Islands are justly famous for their coral reefs and the remote Aldabra Atoll is the largest raised atoll in the world. Despite its remoteness and protected status, the Seychelles suffered a severe coral bleaching event in the late 1990s and a recent assessment by the Seychelles Foundation judged climate change to be the most significant threat facing the atoll.

In March 2003, WWF reported that coral bleaching was occurring at all its 7 research sites in American Samoa, including within the National Park of American Samoa, Fagatele Bay National Marine Sanctuary and Maloata Bay Community Reserve.
Seychelles is a paradise for birdwatchers, you can easily see the unique land birds, the important sea bird colonies, and the host of migrants and vagrants.  Some sea bird colonies are enormous such as sooty tern colony in Bird Island.  You can visit Cousin Island and Aride and some privately owned islands to see both land and sea birds

This Project like others envolving DXCiting members are Projects made by Hams for Hams with NO COMMERCIAL purpose, only with a TRUE and ALIVE Friendship. The "Five Star" DXCiting is an inspired mix of gracious relaxation holidays, cultural discovery and stimulating activity. Offers you different things you can to make time move a little faster. Like Amateur Radio, snorkeling, diving, horseback riding , sunset cruises, exploring historical sites, birds, whales or dolphins watching, or wandering along the sands or trekking on High Mountains.

The DXciting is junction of the Amateur Radio ,Tourism, Adventure and Friendship and also provides good way to spend nice time on vacations sharing friendship and knowledge. The only limit that exists, is how much money we can join and are willing to spend. The biggest decision that we will need to make is where will be.The solutions to the problems resulting from global warming and rising sea level will need to be found by our own people and by the friends of Oceania. There appears to be little doubt that over the next 70 years the resettlement of lot of small island , reef, and atoll islands nation people will be a necessity. It is only to be hoped that our beautiful and unique cultures can be preserved even if only in the hearts and minds of our people.

    • Climate change can often seem like something that will happen in the distant future to people living in faraway places. But what if you live in one those faraway places and the future has already arrived?
We are seeing the early effects of climate change, said Rolph Payet a leading environmental expert, special advisor to the Seychelles president and Nobel laureate in 2007, alongside Al Gore in 2007 for his work with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

On his fingers Payet checked off a list of impacts already hitting the Indian Ocean archipelago: warming oceans, rising sea levels and shifting unpredictable rain patterns.

Our concern is that we are moving to a point of no return where the climate goes down a slide that you cannot stop. We are not far away from this tipping point, he warned.

85,000 people live in the Seychelles, the vast majority on Mahé, the largest of the 115 islands. Its interior is made up of soaring granite peaks tumbling with thick jungle and fresh waterfalls but most of the people, their homes, shops, businesses, hotels, roads and even the airport are squeezed into a narrow coastal strip just a meter or two above the clear calm Indian Ocean waters.

When a massive tsunami hit Asia in 2004 the tidal aftershocks rolled across the Indian Ocean as far as Africa east coast. The waves met little resistance in the Seychelles where the capital Victoria was submerged in shallow seawater.

The waves washed around a miniature silvery replica of London Big Ben clocktower that stand at the little city heart and lapped up against the gates of State House.

Rising sea levels are the biggest threat to the islands, Payet told GlobalPost.

Coral islands will be most dramatically affected by sea level rises as their palm-fringed beaches and luxury resorts sink beneath the seas.

Last October the government of the coral atolls that make up the Indian Ocean nation of the Maldives donned scuba gear to hold a cabinet meeting underwater. Their country is on average just two meters above sea level so the dramatic stunt was designed to draw attention to the Maldives inevitable demise if global warming continues.

We're now actually trying to send our message, let the world know what is happening, and what will happen to the Maldives if climate change is not checked,President Mohamed Nasheed told journalists after he resurfaced.


Environmentalists and friends of the earth have long contended that greenhouse gas emissions are a major contributing factor to global warming. The consequence of this is that the polar icecaps will melt resulting in a subsequent rise in the sea level.

Present research has suggested that there will be an 0.5 - 0.8 degrees C rise in regional surface temperatures during the 20th century with less warming in the northern hemisphere. As a consequence of this, Pacific Island countries are experiencing certain effects which are consistent with the anticipated impacts of global climate change such as adverse effects on human health, drought and the subsequent decline of agricultural productions.

This will adversely affect many Indian Ocean, Atlantic and Pacific Islands, particularly those comprising low-lying coral atolls. Indeed, the effects of global warming are already becoming apparent in many of the outer islands of Papua New Guinea where the rising sea water level has spilled inland with a resultant detrimental effect on food gardens and crops. Indeed, when the tide subsides, pools of salt water remain causing the root crops such as banana, breadfruit trees and other foods to die from an excessive intake of salty water.
There are not many options available to islanders in order to counter the effects of global warming and rising sea levels.

The giant turtle is probably the best known of all Seychelles and Galapagos animals and even gave the archipelago one of the great and beauty Turtle at Aldabra Island. Those  can weigh up to 200 kg and live for more than 100 years. They are thought to belong to just one species, Geochelone elephantopus, with 14 different races or sub-species, three of which are believed to be extinct.

One of the Amimals Protected by WWF. The main population of the Aldabra Giant Tortoise resides on the islands of the Aldabra Atoll in the Seychelles. The atoll has been protected from human influence and is home to some 152,000 giant tortoises, the world's largest population of the animal. Another isolated population of the species resides on the island of Zanzibar. The tortoises exploit many different kinds of habitat including grasslands, low scrub, mangrove swamps, and coastal dunes.

The Aldabra Giant Tortoise has an unusually long history of organized conservation

Tourism and Nature Under a Adventure tourism like trekking, snorkeling, wathing birds, Seychelles Islands are a unique destination of huge natural and cultural tropical diversity. Known as Galapagos "SISTER" - with 253 endemic animals and plants, and another 160 that do not occur anywhere else in Africa. No other land area or reserve in Africa supports so many internationally and nationally significant species in such a small area.Participants will be invited to assist scientists in their research with daily field trips to an ornithological and biological Garden of Eden at the 3rd annual Bird & Nature Week:There will be nightly seminars, photography workshops and special biology guided tours to explore the natural beauty and exotic wildlife of Australia’s most spectacular, yet rarely visited tropical island.Christmas Island is famous for her annual crab migration which begins with the year-end wet season, when you will see millions of crabs moving down to the sea along the forest trails. Almost two-thirds of the island has been declared a national park, making Seychelles a preimire eco destination offering world-class diving & snorkeling, and the chance to see turtles, dolphins, and rare and endemic seabirds.
Discover this unique paradise by participating in the Seychelles Island Bird & Nature Week

Amateur Radio and Tourism Creating friendships across the globe, local ham radio operators are communicating cross-culturally, and even helping to bring tourism into the island they're promoting.The constant growth of the amateur radio hobby has produced a continuously growing on Dxpedition interest on remote exatic and paradisiac islands. Amateur radio, often called ham radio, is both a hobby and a service that uses various types of radio communications equipment to communicate with other radio amateurs for public service, recreation and self-training.

Other global warming effects could also threaten coral reefs

  • More frequent tropical storms caused by global warming could break up the coral.
  • Unusually warm water (by up to 5°C) caused by more frequent El Niño years, would also be an additional stress.
  • More frequent heavy rains means more flooding, more river runoff, and therefore more sediment deposit in the seas.
  • Finally, climate change could also reduce the ability of corals to form their limestone skeletons.
  • A participant is called an amateur radio operator, or a ham. Amateur Radio Operatores take part in wireless communications with each other and often support their communities with emergency and disaster communications while increasing their personal knowledge of electronics and radio theory
