Curieuse Island in the Seychelles has rich conservation history and high quality wildlife experiences, attracting many tourists and generating significant revenue to the economy but due to past human activity, habitats have been sadly been degraded. We aim to provide scientific data for sustainable management of Curieuese Island and through the provision of qualified staff, volunteers and logistical resources, we rely on data collected by GVI Trust Seychelles, in its decision making regarding park operations.

We run around eight scientific monitoring programs. Each of these programs requires significant input of resources such as staff, accommodation, fuel, and scientific monitoring equipment, without which the projects would not be able to run.

Contributions to the operating expenses of our expedition would ensure the continuation of current science projects, and the addition of new high priority projects not possible with current levels of resources.

The success of the Curieuse science program as well as other Islands programs directly translates to more effective sustainable management of CMNP by SNPA, and more effective long term survival and rehabilitation of the island’s flora and fauna. It also raises the local and international profile of the island, generating further assistance and funding for conservation.
