Hope Spot - Mergui Archipelago: protect Myanmar

About Hope Spot - Mergui Archipelago: protect Myanmar
The Mergui Archipelago (also known as Myeik Archipelago or Myeik Kyunzu in Burmese) is an archipelago in far southern Myanmar (Burma) and is part of the Tanintharyi Region. It consists of more than 800 islands, varying in size from very small to hundreds of square kilometers, all lying in the Andaman Sea off the western shore of the Malay Peninsula near its northern end where it joins the rest of Indochina. The islands are covered with thick tropical growth, including rainforest, and their shorelines are punctuated by beaches, rocky headlands, and in some places, mangrove swamps. Offshore are extensive coral reefs. The archipelago’s virtual isolation from most of mankind’s influence on the natural environment has given the islands and the surrounding waters of the Andaman Sea a great diversity of life, including grey reef sharks, nurse sharks, blotched stingrays, schools of mobula rays, frogfish, ghost pipefish, ribbon eels and cowries as well as many crustaceans. Whale sharks and manta rays make seasonal visits to the region. An increasingly popular dive destination, Mergui only opened to foreign tourism in 1997 after negotiations between Burma and dive operators from Phuket, Thailand. The archipelago’s isolation is such that much of it has not even yet been thoroughly explored.rnMore details
