SAVE Grand Police Beach & Ecosystem in SEYCHELLES

This petition had 3,051 supporters

Grand Police is recognised as a key Biodiversity area of high ecological significance for the preservation of a variety of endemic plants that take residence in the mountains from Anse Corail, Mont Covin to Grand Police including the endemic ‘Bwa Marmaille’ (extremely rare to be sighted – it’s hard to stress how much so) and the ‘Orchid Payanke’ which is our national flower in Seychelles.

There are also animal species that enjoy this habitat, several of which are also critically endangered such as the yellow bellied and black mud turtles. It is also the largest remaining, untouched freshwater wetland in the whole of Seychelles; one of the biologically most diverse ecosystems on our planet.

In short it should have NEVER been earmarked for hotel development.

If enough people sign and show their displeasure at this decision and their support to protect nature then we will have leverage to ask the President to use his ultimate influence to reverse this decision. If we lose then this ecosystem will be permanently destroyed and another concrete structure will be erected in its place.

Seychelles is our home and our heritage and we have to fight to preserve as much of it in its natural beauty as possible, a beauty that the world admires and we are fortunate to have and call home.

Let’s give nature a voice – please sign our petition.This is what we are trying to save
