Seychellois scholar Ameer Ebrahim completes an Honors degree in Marine Science with First Class Honors from Griffith University of the Gold Coast Australia

Seychellois scholar Ameer Ebrahim completes an Honors degree in Marine Science with First Class Honors from Griffith University of the Gold Coast Australia (Forimmediaterelease.net) Ameer Ebrahim, a Seychellois scholar studying at Griffith University on the Gold Coast in Australia, has successfully completed an Honours degree in Marine Science graduating with First Class Honours. The Honours degree involved a research project where Ameer Ebrahim developed his own methodology and techniques to carry out a study on a specific topic. His project involved looking at the effects of grazing by different organisms on seagrass habitats. Seagrass habitats provide a large range of important ecological services and benefits, and this is what enticed Ameer Ebrahim to study this important resource. His results determined that grazing on seagrass is a key process regulating seagrass dynamics in nature, and importantly that different groups of organisms contribute in different ways.

Ameer Ebrahim said that he took on this study project because Seychelles, his country of birth also has the same habitat and fish stock. “It is important to know what we have in our seas so as to better appreciate their importance," Ameer Ebrahim said.

By obtaining the highest award of First Class Honours, Ameer Ebrahim now qualifies for a PhD, which he has already secured to undertake at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. He has already received a scholarship from the Australian Rivers Institute (ARI) to publish his work worldwide.

Ameer Ebrahim said that he is thankful to Minister Peter Sinon, the Seychelles Minister for Natural Resources, who holds the portfolio for Fisheries, and to Mr. Finley Racombo and his team at the Seychelles Fishing Authority (SFA) for their continuous support and encouragement.

The young graduate plans to publish his work worldwide, as well as complete a PhD before returning to the Seychelles to play his part in conserving our precious marine life.
