Eastern Pacific Seascape

The Eastern Pacific Seascape spans Central and South America, covering a total of two million square kilometers. This Hope Spot encompasses a number of the world's most important natural habitats, including the coasts of Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador and the Galapagos Archipelago, where Charles Darwin carried out his groundbreaking research. Schooling hammerhead sharks call this region home, and migrating leatherback and Olive Ridley sea turtles utilize nearby beaches for nesting. The marine life in this area experiences threats from unsustainable tourism, overfishing and shipping traffic, but action has been taken! More than a dozen Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) have been established throughout the area, with several nonprofits working to combine international efforts to protect these waters and the threatened species that inhabit them.
