No. 5 The Noah's Ark Project

The rehabilitation and restoration of North Island, Seychelles

Why do we believe?

  • We have proved that in a world where indulgence is so often at the expense of the environment, committing to the conservation of North Island and its creatures – while at the same time creating the ultimate in island hospitality and service – is possible. We placed luxury in harmony with nature.
  • We helped save a bird species from extinction and have plans to extend this to others.
  • The active restoration of the island and reintroductions onto it have been supplemented by a number of natural recolonisations and growth in populations of other threatened species such as the hawksbill turtle and Seychelles kestrel – nature’s ultimate compliment!

Our highlight to date has been the introduction of the Seychelles white-eye in 2005 when its global population was just 350 birds and it was classified as Critically Endangered by the IUCN. From our founder population of 25 birds we now have over 100.

The rehabilitation and restoration of North Island, Seychelles

We took an ecologically-bankrupt tropical island and transformed it into a haven for endemic species – helping save an endangered bird and reptile at the same time.
