Marine Life of St Helena
About the book
Situated in the South Atlantic 1,800 km from Africa, the isolated sub-tropical island of St Helena provides a home to both eastern and western Atlantic inshore marine species. Habitats of golden and volcanic black sand, algae encrusted boulders and extensive bedrock slabs provide refuge to a rich marine life. Spectacular vertical walls, arches and caves are covered in many species including the striking endemic orange cup coral. This identification guide brings together a wealth of information including new research, and covers marine life great and small, from the huge whale shark to the tiny but beautiful sea slugs, some found nowhere else on earth.
