Hope Spot - Grand Récif de Toliara: protect over 500 reef species

About Hope Spot - Grand Récif de Toliara: protect over 500 reef species
The Grand Recif de Toliara of Madagascar is 18 to 25 kilometers long and three kilometers wide. Five hundred reef fish species have been recorded in the area and there is a high diversity of other marine life. There are also significant stands of mangroves and extensive seagrass beds. The Grand Recif barrier reef of Toliara and neighboring reefs in southwest Madagascar constitute one of the West Indian Ocean’s largest coral reef systems and thus represent a significant biodiversity “hotspot” for the region. Much of this biodiversity remains, to date, unknown to science. Several marine species listed as endangered or vulnerable to extinction are known to exist in Madagascar’s waters, including the dugong, sea turtles, the whale shark and the coelacanth. Over 130 species of reef-building corals, more than 600 species of sponge and 552 species of reef fish have been described from the Grand Recif de Toliara alone.
