The Seychelles
Between sky and water

A habitat rich in species, where the environmental conditions are ideal for the development of life. The water is shallow and the sun gives its vital energy to every nook of the sea bed. As rich as it is fragile, considering that the water temperature must be more or less constant, to support the life of the coral reef. The low temperature is the death of many species due to the lack of nutritional elements. But even more dangerous is the water’s increased temperature, unfortunately very common in this age of global warming. The Seychelles are home to primordial palm forests, the ancient forest that covered all dry low lands between Madagascar and the Indian subcontinent, which today survive only in this archipelago.
