Traveller's guide to wildlife of Seychelles

£19.99

Product description

This copy is in good condition with no internal markings or annotations. There are signs of wear with some pages curved (see photos)

An easy-to-use, compact photoguide to the wildlife of the Seychelles, including tips on where to go to make the most of your visit The 115 coral islands that make up the Seychelles are a haven for wildlife, and 60% of its visitors each year come from Europe. The tourist industry in the Seychelles has grown dramatically over the past 25 years and several marine and nature reserves have been formed to ensure the wildlife remains protected and can be enjoyed. Trips to Bird Island - just one of the many paradise islands for birdwatchers - are now strictly regulated, but better marketed for visitors. The distant atoll of Aldabra is a world heritage site and boasts the world's largest population of giant tortoises. There are many species unique to the Seychelles due to the relatively late arrival of humans on the islands. Despite the fact that many visitors go to the Seychelles for its wildlife, there is no photographic guide for the general tourist. This pocket-sized photographic guide is perfect for the traveller, showing and describing all the birds, mammals and plants you're likely to see, as well as all the fish that can be seen while snorkelling. It covers all the invertebrates, reptiles and amphibians, and there is a 'notes for visitors' section with general advice. There are also some suggested walks that you can do on the islands and notes of what you're likely to see on the way. With tips on where to go to make the most of your visit, Wildlife of the Seychelles is an indispensable guide for any naturalist in the area.
