Discover Cousin Island Seychelles

Having been listed as a Nature Reserve in 1968 and a Special Reserve in 1975, Cousin Island, which belongs to the Royal Society for Nature Conservation, is a genuine place of refuge for all sorts of birds, and more specifically, protected species. These include the Seychelles toc-toc, the dwarf noddy, the little shearwater, the fairy tern (one of the symbols of the Seychelles), and the sooty tern. All of these birds have found the ideal habitat on Cousin Island, where you'll also find plenty of geckos and giant tortoises. In the interests of preserving the delicate balance of this exceptional natural environment, the Seychellois authorities have limited access to the island. It is only accessible to a limited number of people and only in the mornings from Monday to Friday. Preservation, it seems, comes at a price!
