Reforming our education system, setting up our own university and creating opportunities for young people to develop themselves in all aspects of their lives all form part of a national drive that will allow the Seychellois people to be masters of their own destiny.

A special whale stranded on Desroches Island


On June 20 a freshly dead male ginkgo-toothed beaked whale was found stranded on the beach at the eastern end of Desroches near to the old lighthouse. 

This is the first ginkgo-toothed beaked whale to ever be recorded in the Seychelles. This particular whale measured over four metres in length, was dark grey black in colour and had a short beak, with two teeth barely protruding from the middle lower jaw. The whale had sustained two serious shark bites, one on its head and the other on its tail, the wounds were clean cut with clear teeth marks and are thought to have been caused by a tiger shark.

Intellectual property rights in focus

Stronger rupee makes travel much cheaper


Airline tickets and boat charter fares have dropped sharply because the rupee has gained in value, meaning a traveller now needs less in local currency to buy a ticket.

All the airlines contacted said this yesterday when the US dollar was selling at just R12.85.
A number of them are also selling tickets at promotional rates, with Air Seychelles asking for R5,730 instead of R6,298 to Mauritius, Qatar $782 – down from the usual $1,010 – to India, and Kenya Airways $300 instead of $400 to Nairobi.
