Rendezvous Zones - Paradise Found-The Phoenix Islands


Tags : Paradise Found-The Phoenix Islands    Kiribati    Coral Reef      
Paradise Found: The Phoenix Islands explores eight of the world's most pristine coral atolls -- the Phoenix Islands of the Pacific nation of Kiribati. As part of the New England Aquarium's Primal Ocean Project, a group of scientists and experienced divers sponsored by the New England Aquarium and invited by the Kiribati government, set out in 2000 and 2002 to catalogue the wealth of species found in these coral reefs. This baseline data is now the foundation for a conservation blueprint that will protect this coral paradise from commercial overfishing using a sustainable, innovative plan to create an endowment/trust that would protect these reefs into the future.
