CONSERVATION EXPERIENCE

With such wonders all around, the Blue safari team is highly knowledgeable, dedicated and passionate about the protection and conservation of these exquisite islands and their natural wonders in the Seychelles.

To share our love and excitement for the rich biodiversity of the region, we’ve put together a variety of engaging and educational conservation experiences for the whole family to take part in.

The conservation activities were selected to showcase the purpose and highlights of the various conservation projects that are running on the islands.

These new and exciting experiences offer guests the chance to not only observe nature, but to truly immerse themselves and add to the continued preservation of the regions’ natural wonders.

Guided by our experienced and passionate team, the activities aim to be both fun and educational.

Each of our island destinations also have a conservation facility where these projects are run and maintained from, and where guests can go to learn more about the projects and the impact they have on the ecosystems of the islands.  

Our Blue safari experiences include a variety of excursions from turtle tracking and monitoring to beach clean-ups to surveys done on the reef flats.

With our new engaging conservation experiences, we hope to educate and inspire everyone about the natural biodiversity and beauty of the Seychelles as well as further its dedication to eco-friendly, sustainable tourism and conservation efforts.
