Lakshadweep Islands

The Lakshadweep Islands are home to some of the highest diversity of reefs in India and are an important biogeographic link between the subcontinent and East Africa. The islands' waters are home to a high diversity of marine life, including spinner and bottlenose dolphins, killer whales, melon-headed whales, green and Hawksbill sea turtles and beautiful coral reefs. Unfortunately, this area experiences pressures from urbanization, population growth and coral destruction. Luckily, the local government and several organizations have been hard at work putting policies in place and creating a culture of conservation to preserve the islands and their waters for future generations to enjoy.
