Seychelles featured in National Geographic Magazine!  From the article:  “Restoration efforts are giving vulnerable native species a second chance on islands in the Indian Ocean. Privately owned St. Joseph Atoll was once commercially exploited for fish and coconuts but is now prized for its marine biodiversity and seabird colonies. In 2014 the island was made a nature reserve with a marine protected area. Its conservation is managed by the Save Our Seas Foundation.  High tide in Aldabra lagoon finds green turtles grazing on sea grass. Here and on other Seychelles islands, exploitation by humans has given way to admiration and a desire to protect and restore.
