The Seychelles archipelago belongs to one of the major biodiversity hotspots in the world. Approximately 47% of the country’s land mass, and some 228 square-km of its ocean territory, are under some form of protected status. However, Seychelles’ biodiversity remains at risk from a variety of human induced pressures; this makes the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity of vital importance for the country’s sustainable development.
