Hotel Updates: Cousine Island, Seychelles

The Hawksbills return to Cousine for another nesting season

It is that time of year again when female Hawksbill sea turtles visit Cousine’s stretch of beach to lay their eggs. 

Despite a slow start to the season, we have now seen nine successful nests laid, and many more nesting attempts, keeping our Conservation team busy with beach patrols, recording biometrics and tag numbers, and relocating any nests at risk of being washed away by the sea.

With our first nest due to hatch around Christmas time, we are super excited for all the Hawksbill hatchlings we will be releasing over the next 6-months! Last year’s total was 19,606 tiny baby turtles – hopefully this year is even more successful!
