Seychelles is a living museum of natural history and a sanctuary for
some of the rarest species of flora & fauna on earth. With almost 50% of
its limited landmass set aside as national parks and reserves,
Seychelles prides itself on its record for far sighted conservation
policies that have resulted in an enviable degree of protection for the
environment and the varied ecosystems it supports.
Nowhere else on earth will you find unique endemic specimens such as the
fabulous Coco-de-mer, the largest seed in the world, the jellyfish tree,
with only eight surviving examples, the Seychelles’ paradise flycatcher
and Seychelles warbler.
Seychelles is also home to two U.N.E.S.C.O World Heritage Sites: Aldabra,
the world’s largest raised coral atoll and Praslin’s Vallée de Mai, once
believed to be the original site of the Garden of Eden.
From the smallest frog to the heaviest land tortoise and the only
flightless bird of the Indian Ocean, Seychelles nurtures an amazing
array of endemic species within surrounds of exceptional natural beauty.
