‘One Seychelles’ leader meets world famous champion for ocean protection Dr Sylvia Earle | 17 February 2020
The leader of the One Seychelles political party, Alain St Ange, had the pleasure and privilege of meeting Dr Sylvia Earle, an esteemed marine scientist and globally recognised champion for ocean protection.
Dr Earle is here in Seychelles along with her team to film a programme for the BBC; when given a choice as to where in the world she would like to film, she expressed her preference for Seychelles.
“She has dived in our waters, including around Aldabra, many years ago, and has expressed a lasting fondness for our islands,” says a communiqué from One Seychelles.
Seychellois marine scientist, Ameer Ebrahim, was also in attendance during this meeting.
Mr St Ange is escorting the team during their upcoming dives around Denis Island.
Dr Earle continues to be an inspiration for young scientists, particularly for women in science.
She agreed with Mr St Ange about the necessity of preserving and protecting the integrity of our islands, including Assomption island.
