A GRADUATE has landed what many would consider the perfect job.

Lois Nippard, 32, graduated from the University of Brighton last summer in earth and ocean science.

Now she is working on a sandy beach in the Seychelles, swimming in the Indian Ocean and based at a luxury resort.

She has been working for the past four months for WiseOceans, the marine conservation and education company.

Lois said: “Each day arriving at the beach makes me laugh a little in shock at my ‘office.’

“Petite Anse is a remarkably beautiful bay, even by Seychelles standards, with the picturesque fine white sand, azure water and dramatic granite cliffs.

“The marine life here is pretty special and I have been fortunate enough to see mobula rays, turtles and white tip reef sharks all in my first month.”

Lois, 32, is employed to teach holidaymakers about the marine wildlife and about the company’s conservation efforts.

She said: “I strongly believe that to help protect the natural wonders of our planet you must combine science and education.

“I feel proud that here at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles I am able to contribute to both.

“In this short space of time I feel like I have begun to make a real difference.

“I want to say how lucky I feel to be part of such a wonderful team. As a diverse group with different career backgrounds I feel like I am constantly learning from them all the time and they are more than happy to pass on that knowledge.

“I am proud to be working with such a passionate, knowledgeable and friendly bunch of amazing people!”
