‘Victoria Accueil’ Joins us once again for World Environment Day!

The French Association 'Victoria Accueil' joined us again this June to do a bit of beach cleaning along Bird Island's shores. This was to coincide with World Environment Day which occurs on June 5th. Bird Island Lodge welcomed 6 members from the French-speaking association, which this year was led by Mr Alix de Bretagne.

This year was no exception, with litter such as plastic slippers, water bottles and polystyrene materials which had washed onto our shores. The group carried out their work dutifully and were rewarded with the opportunity of experiencing the island's Sooty Terns in full breeding season.

'Victoria Accueil' mainly facilitates meetings and exchanges for French and French-speaking people living in the Seychelles through various activities. The aim of the association is to welcome and help newcomers to settle in the Seychelles in a spirit of mutual enrichment.

Thank you Victoria Accuiel!
