Education and communications coordinator position

31st July 2023

Spreading the love for our oceans to the Seychelles’ inner islands


The Seychelles Islands have been at the heart of the Save Our Seas Foundation since its founding in 2003. Our work in research, conservation, and education in Seychelles has since mainly focused on our two gems in the Amirantes group: D’Arros Island and the St Joseph Atoll. In order to protect the remaining near-pristine environments, such as our two gems and our oceans in general, the work needs to begin at home; the inner islands. 20 years later, the dedication is stronger than ever to build passionate Seychellois, by establishing a permanent position to coordinate marine education programs on Mahe, Praslin and LaDigue islands, where everyone lives.
