Silhouette Island, Seychelles

"Dauban Coconut Plantation"watercolor 9 x 12"
2001 photo Elroy Christenson

The Dauban family and their coconut plantation helped to claim and improve the land of Silhouette Island. When the price and production of copra was no longer viable, the plantation was more or less abandoned and taken over by the new Republic of the Seychelles. The old head quarters building now houses the Silhouette Island Historical Society. It's a shoestring operation with very little funds even for the maintainance of the building itself. Tourism is the main industry in the Seychelles. The main notoriety of the island today is the Gaint Tortoise Rescue Project headquartered nearby.
