Bird Island is one of the privately owned and managed island where nature and the environment co-exists with a tourism development in the form of an eco-lodge. The island is owned and managed by Guy Savy and he has over the years successfully managed his lodge whilst preserving the ecology of the island and the millions of sea birds who return year after year in greater numbers to lay their eggs and rear their chicks.

Seychelles is known to be advocating the eco-tourism concept with its Ministry of Tourism and Culture pushing forward the Sustainable Label concept for their island hotels and resorts. The islands have many nature parks and islands but Bird Island remains the only such nature park of ‘exceptional beauty’ managing successfully to make a money business with an eco-lodge as they protect their island natural habitat.
