The Seychelles is perhaps the best example in the Indian Ocean of turtle conservation. Several NGOs and experienced researchers are working with the government and local community to bring about change to save these ancient species. As a result of the continued efforts happening and strict anti-poaching laws in the Seychelles, the turtles that return each year are afforded protection and it is hoped this will lead to population increase.
