Protect Paradise

Seychelles Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre

One can attribute the Seychelles islands to a living Garden of Eden. These islands are the oldest mid oceanic islands in the world. Seychelles’ islands have a relatively small land mass, of 458, 8km, isolated in the middle of the Indian ocean.

They host a diverse range of flora and fauna, many unique and rare. There are untold secrets to understand amidst the exotic marine life or above the misty peaks where tropical birds are seen soaring the thermals.

Fragile ecosystems can easily be impacted by exploitation, even leading to rapid tipping points with no warning.

Who We Are & What We Do

Seychelles Wildlife Rehab

Protect Paradise Seychelles is a registered and licensed NGO, offering a rescue and rehabilitation service to all of Seychelles endemic wildlife species. Our primary objective is to reverse the decline of Seychelles wildlife populations through our services.

We are dedicated to the welfare and conservation of all Seychelles native and endemic flora and fauna, both terrestrial and marine. Through rescue, rehabilitation, release, scientific research, education and outreach our objectives are fulfilled. We believe conservation practices and welfare of all wildlife should be incorporated and management plans put into place and prioritized before animals become critically endangered.

We are involved in conservation projects, in collaboration with our partners locally and internationally. Our projects strive to contribute towards healthy ecosystems through rehabilitation, research, and awareness of marine and terrestrial life.

We are actively involved in the annual Turtle nesting season which spans from October to March. We collect important data of all turtle emergencies, tracks, nests and hatchlings. During this period we monitor and clean the beach. Before the season commences, we clean and prepare the nesting platforms which are slightly higher than the high tide mark, of fallen leaves, low hanging branches and debris. This allows the turtles to reach better nesting sites, which have a higher success rate. For the safety of the clutch we demarcate all nests. We are available to monitor all nest hatchlings, ensuring the hatchlings arrive at the ocean.

Our Vision

Through the creation of Protect Paradise, the sick, injured, and orphaned endemic wildlife of Seychelles will be offered a haven of protection, where they will be nurtured by dedicated caregivers. Our vision is that humans and wildlife can live in co-existence, and we can gain a deeper understanding of their significant roles in nature.
