“Cousin Island has a diversity of flora and fauna. As a senior warden, I get to care for and protect some of the world’s most endangered species such as the charismatic Seychelles magpie robin and Hawksbill turtles. I am an avid photographer and I love to take photos of the wildlife here. They are so at ease and you can get really close to them. Like Seychelles, Cousin is unique by a thousand miles and I enjoy showing it off to visitors.”
