Palmyra Atoll

Palmyra was formed by coral growth on the rim of a submerged volcano that rises 16,000 feet from the ocean floor. It is fringed by lagoons and sprawling reefs that are home to a profusion of whales, sharks, sea turtles, dolphins, manta rays and exotic fish. Its vast submerged reefs, which radiate seaward beyond the atoll, support over 130 species of coral — three times the number found in Hawaii and the Caribbean, and five times that found in the Florida Keys. Being one of the most uninhabited and isolated places on Earth, it's rich abundance of life in the water and on land are incredibly healthy – a wonderful example of what an ecosystem looks like with virtually zero human impact.
