Hope Spot - Andaman Islands: save one of the world's richest marine environments

About Hope Spot - Andaman Islands: save one of the world's richest marine environments
The Andaman Islands of India comprise around 325 volcanic islands and islets, covering a total land area of approximately 6,400 km2. High-diversity fringing reefs, extensive mangroves and seagrass meadows characterize the marine environment. With upward of 200 species of coral, the Andaman Islands are the highest diversity reefs in India. The reefs have received scant biological attention, offering few reliable ecological or taxonomic baselines. However, the few studies done in these waters indicate that these systems are perhaps the richest marine environments in the country. The mangrove forests of the Andamans are among the most extensive in India, and perhaps the least disturbed. The extensive seagrass meadows in the north are home to the highly endangered dugong, and may represent the most feasible place for its conservation in the subcontinent.
