Rainbows over the reef on Frances’ last day

Over the last two weeks weeks we were excited to welcome Frances Benstrong and Emmaline Contoret to the WiseOceans team here at Petite Anse. They are taking part in the national Blue Economy Internship Programme, which we at WiseOceans and Four Seasons Resort Seychelles were excited to support. Here’s what it’s all about…

An initiative being launched by SIDS Youth AIMS Hub-Seychelles is determined to revolutionise the ‘career-selection’ experience. Through support by the British High Commission and Commonwealth Youth Council, the initiative will promote sustainable development opportunities for young people in the Seychelles to learn about the different prospects in jobs available in the Blue Economy.”

During their week long internships they have been learning the ropes here at Petite Anse, developing ID and survey skills, writing blogs and learning about the reef restoration project.

Look out for their blogs coming soon!…
