Sailors Help Out at Nature Sanctuary in Seychelles
Sailors assigned to the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS James E. Williams (DDG 95) participated in a community relations project in Port Victoria, Seychelles, Nov. 14. The project took place at Nature Seychelles, a local nature sanctuary, where Sailors widened and dug out a canal to help support the Red Mangrove ecosystem, cut down invasive plants and transported soil that would be mixed with compost to enrich soil.
