Seagrass at the waterline, Seychelles
The Seychelles is home to nearly 88,000 people of mixed background ancestry including French, African, Indian, Chinese and Arab. In the past 30 years much of the growth on the Islands has been led by the tourism sector which provides more than 70% of cash earnings.
Threats to the marine ecology include reclamation, Silt from run-off and damage by anchors, fishermen or tourists.
