Hope Spot - Abrolhos Bank: the highest marine biodiversity in the southern Atlantic

About Hope Spot - Abrolhos Bank: the highest marine biodiversity in the southern Atlantic
The Abrolhos Region, spanning 56,000 km², is a mosaic of marine and coastal ecosystems that encompasses the largest reef area and the highest marine biodiversity in the southern Atlantic. The unique “chapeirão” reefs in Abrolhos consist of mushroom-shaped pinnacles, built predominantly by Brazilian endemic species covered with fans of fire coral and round knobs of brain corals. Many commercially valuable species of reef fish can be found in the region, including several threatened fish species. The Abrolhos Bank serves as the main breeding ground for humpback whales in the western South Atlantic Ocean. This region constitutes the only offshore site along the distribution of the Guiana dolphin, and is also home to the rough-toothed dolphin and bottlenose dolphin. The southern right whale, a species listed as endangered, also uses the Abrolhos bank for breeding and calving. The Abrolhos Archipelago is also an important nesting site for marine bird species including the red-billed tropicbird Phaethon aethereus, the boobies Sula dactylatra and Sula leucogaster, the magnificent frigatebird Fregata magnificens and the migratory brown noddy Anous stolidus, as well as three IUCN Red-listed marine turtle species: the endangered green (Chelonia mydas) and loggerhead (Caretta caretta) turtles, and the critically endangered hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata).
