Hi, my name is Hemma Saffrance. I am 18 years old and I am from Seychelles Maritime Academy. I am in my second year in Fisheries science. I heard about MCSS at school through Carla who was here last year. I decided to work with MCSS on Cerf island because I am interested in the marine life. My three months’ work attachment is until June and will give me more of an idea of what I really want to do in the future.
Since I started on Monday the 19th, I have beach cleaned with Arriana, have gone snorkeling on some of the trails, learned about the important roles of reefs for the ecosystem, and have also learned about the different life forms of coral. I’ve learned different facts about some genus of corals and fish in our sea which I have seen on the guided snorkels with guests. So far I am enjoying my time working with MCSS.
In my 3 months here I would like to learn more about the restoration project; the artificial reefs and nurseries. I am also looking forward to learn about the identification of and threats to the corals. I hope at the end of my work attachment I will be able to know which job should I choose in the future.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
