The SOSF Island School Seychelles (SOSF–ISS) focuses solely on marine environmental education and awareness and recognises the importance of making a real investment in environmental education. We believe in the words of Senegalese conservationist Baba Dioum: ‘In the end we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand and we will understand only what we are taught.’ Since we began in 2014, we have reached thousands of students across all ages throughout the Seychelles.
Although there were a variety of indoor and outdoor activities for them to enjoy, snorkelling was the unanimous favourite among the Marine Explorers. These young children had the opportunity to explore different marine ecosystems of the Seychelles at first hand. Photo by Michael Scholl
