About this book

After working principally for the RSPB for 25 years, Sally Mills swapped Somerset security for tropical tempestuousness to manage the prestigious Aride Island Nature Reserve in the Seychelles. Island to Island portrays a rare insight into a dynamic and challenging, yet privileged existence living amongst a million seabirds and some of the rarest wildlife in the world.

A nature lover’s dream, to manage a tropical island nature reserve, just one mile long by half a mile wide, six nautical miles from the mainland, with no electricity or running water. However, from star-flled skies to merciless monsoons, deadly pisonia to devastating poaching, turbulent seas to tumultuous staff, existence became dominated by an eclectic mix of emotional turmoil.

Customer Reviews


Sally Mills was born in 1967 and raised in rural North Wales, where she was inspired by her bucolic surroundings leading to a fascination with the natural world. A healthy obsession with birds dominated her life and has continued to do so to this day.

Fulflling her childhood passion throughout her working life, she spent 25 years in nature conservation working principally for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. This occupation also fuelled her drive for sustainability, and she was seconded to the government to pioneer new bioenergy initiatives powered by nature reserve vegetation.

Towards the end of her conservation career, Sally earned the chance to manage a tropical island nature reserve in Seychelles, together with partner Melvyn. Her commitment to wildlife was rewarded with this opportunity of a lifetime to manage the prestigious Aride Island Nature Reserve in the Seychelles.
