Malpelo Island

Malpelo is a small volcanic island located about 490 km from Buenaventura Port, Colombia and has bathymetry that descends up to 4,000 meters underwater. Although the island boasts a size of only .5 square miles, its surrounding waters are home to what has been considered one of the most important coral formations in the Colombian Pacific. In 1995, The Colombian National Government declared Malpelo a Marine Protected Area in the Fauna and Flora Sanctuary category, making it a protected oceanic area in the Colombian pacific with suitable conditions to shelter a high biodiversity, providing hope to existing and future generations.
