Hope Spot - Maldive Atolls: Save this species-rich marine area

About Hope Spot - Maldive Atolls: Save this species-rich marine area
This is one of the most species-rich marine areas within this Indian Ocean region. The islands of the Maldives contain a number of atolls with major natural freshwater lakes and wetlands that are refuges for a range of bird species. While a detailed biodiversity inventory has not been undertaken, it is estimated that there are approximately 250 species of scleractinian corals and 55 genera of hermatypic corals. Fish populations are diverse and extremely abundant, as are invertebrate fauna. Five species of turtle and a number of other globally and locally threatened marine species such as whales and whale sharks, black corals, dolphins, pearl oysters, stony corals, eels, skates and rays, parrot fish, bait fish and puffer fish have been declared as protected species.
