Operations and Maintenance Officer
Jean Claude is a born and bred Seychellois from Anse Aux Pins. He has had a range of jobs including chef, mason and painter. His interest in conservation, especially with turtles, sparked a career shift towards conservation in 2008. Initially he gained experience in conservation on D’Arros island where he began as a volunteer with Dr Jeanne A. Mortimer. He later joined ICS as a Conservation Ranger and has worked on Farquhar, Aride, Silhouette and Desroches. He was promoted to the post of Senior Conservation Ranger at the beginning of 2021. Jean Claude is very hands on and a competent carpenter; this skill set is particularly useful for reconstructing skeletons, and examples can be seen at the Conservation Centres on Desroches and Silhouette. His favourite island is Desroches, in his own words “the island has everything; there are tortoises, turtles, plants, fish, coral and seagrass”. His favourite animal is the Green Sea Turtle (Chelonia mydas).
Steve previously worked in the hospitality industry before starting work on excursion boats. In between this, he played football for a few years followed by fishing, before starting work on Aride as a gardener and general worker in 2021. In less than a year, he was promoted to Assistant Conservation Ranger and more recently, to Conservation Ranger/ Boatman. His hobbies include TV, football, fishing and reading. All in all, he feels this is one of the best jobs in the world.
