We welcomed a new face with us this week who will be here till the middle of December.
Welcome to MCSS and the CICP Laurene!
Hi my name is Laurene Mousbe im 17 years old. I went to SMA post secondary, that is Seychelles Marinetime Academy. There I’ve been learning about the ocean and the species that are found in the ocean. But since I love to do science, I feel that what SMA is teaching me is not enough so I’ve been asking for information about where I could learn more about marine species. My class teacher told me that he knows a place where I could study more about marine species; that’s why I’ve come here to Cerf Island to do my work attachment with the MCSS (Marine Conservation Society Seychelles). I’ve been here for 3 days and they are teaching me how to be comfortable in the water, and snorkeling. Im looking forward to learn more about everything and to achieve my goals in the month that I’ll be here. Here at the MCSS they don’t just snorkel around on the snorkelling and kayak trails. They also clean the beach and the reef just to make sure things like empty bottles, plastic bag don’t pollute the sea, they are increasing the interaction between wildlife and visitors, they are educating marine park goers about the reef, and are working on artificial reefs. I look forward to learning all and participating in these activities.
