North Island represents a Noah’s Ark – a sanctuary where natural wildlife habitats are being rehabilitated and where critically endangered Seychelles fauna and flora are being reintroduced by conservationists and volunteers – providing a haven to regenerate.



Being involved in the marking and monitoring of the Green and Hawksbill populations on North Island is a truly amazing experience,” says volunteer Bas Kroon. “It’s not easy to explain what it feels like to see a turtle (on the beach or in the ocean) and help with the tagging of a turtle. One thing is for sure though – it’s something you will never ever forget!”


Catch a glimpse in this video of the work that volunteers on the island conservation project in the Seychelles are part of, as well as the beautiful natural surroundings and wildlife of North Island that they will live amongst. A really great opportunity for budding conservationists to gain field experience!



Volunteers will get to immerse themselves in the culture and nature of the Seychelles, while living and working on a remote island, protecting the island and its various species through their conservation efforts, including Green and Hawksbill turtles and Aldabra Giant Tortoises.



North Island in the Seychelles is a tropical island paradise – a rare sanctuary for those seeking island and marine conservation activities on a gorgeous, unspoiled tropical haven.  It is considered by many to be the most beautiful archipelago in the world with its luminous white beaches, granite outcrops and azure oceans.

The assigned staff beach on North Island provides the perfect opportunity to go swimming, snorkelling or even a sun-downer after work in the afternoons. North Island equipment such as surfboards, paddle-boards and kayaks are available for use every day after 4pm, so there are plenty of opportunities to have fun!
