Ambassador Mary Jo Wills Visits Cousin Island
During her visit to Seychelles from April 17 to April 24, 2010, Ambassador Mary Jo Wills, accompanied by Mr. Calvin Wills, visited Cousin Island, a bird sanctuary which has received Self Help funding from the U.S. Embassy in 2007. Cousin Island is the last remaining home of the Seychelles warbler, and was made a nature reserve in 1968. It was bought by the Birdlife International to save the tiny population of Seychelles warblers from extinction. A tour of the island was organized by Mr. Shah of Nature Seychelles which manages the island.
