Cousin is the most protected island with the highest number of endemic plants and animals in the Seychelles.
It is possible to visit it with the help of a naturalist guide and observe the birds, turtles and other animals that inhabit the island.
Thanks to extensive conservation efforts, the island has also become one of the most important nesting sites for hawksbill turtles. Each season, they come to the beach up to six times in two-week intervals, then stay there for three years. Through animal surveillance, it has become apparent that they only return to the beach when their own offspring are about to hatch.
