Blue sky, Blue waters, Blue economy – SANBio/BioFISA II team visited Seychelles

Nature Seychelles

Seychelles is a beautiful country – that can hardly be denied. Surrounded by crystal clear waters, with mountains and hills towering almost overhead as you walk on the beaches, you cannot help but be impressed by your surroundings. The country is, however, very small even though it comprises more than 116 gorgeous islands.

However, this is not a travel blog or advertisement – instead, we will focus on other exciting things more relevant to what NEPAD-SANBio is all about.
