Description

From outer space, the 115 islands that make up the Seychelles archipelago are little more than specks of rock and coral spread in a fan across the western Indian Ocean. This magnificent book is a visual journey into the aquatic world of this remote archipelago, and a celebration of its underwater world and spectacular marine wildlife. The Seychelles coral reefs are among the most extensive in the Indian Ocean, and Sir David Attenborough described the south-western atoll of Aldabra is one of the wonders of the world. Mangrove forests and sea grass beds are also well represented. With a high level of marine biodiversity - the Seychelles hosts one of one of the world's most important hawksbill turtle populations, and are a globally important sanctuary for whale sharks. This title is published in association with the Save our Seas Foundation.
