Project Dates

Egg Collection SeychellesThe Seychelles Island Conservation Volunteer Programme takes place the whole year on Cousin Island with the possibility to volunteer for 4 to 8 weeks.

The main island of Mahé, is home to the Seychelles International Airport. Eco-tourists must arrive by Monday morning, in time to catch the 08:30 AM staff boat to North Island (which departs from the Marine Charter Harbour in Victoria).

If you cannot find a flight arriving early on Monday morning, allowing enough time to get from the Airport to the Marine Charter Harbour for the 08:30 AM boat on Monday morning, then you can rather fly in to Mahé on the Sunday, and overnight.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with victoria.mcneil@workingabroad.com if you would like to know when the particular activities take place during the year.
