Europa Islandisle of Europe
Endangered breeds worldwide (status in red) have been detected by Birdlife International in Treatened Birds of the World (Birds toWatch3). The Bird Checklists of the World is part of Avibase and BirdLink to the World, created and managed by Denis Lepage and chaired by Bird Studies Canada, a co-partner of Birdlife International.
One story about two monkeys
This is an approach to the gender of the sea turtles: two huge giants clutching each other to the mussels and flowing sluggishly through the crystalline water of a cristal clear seawater. It is a coastline like the one that surrounds Ile Europa off Madagascar's southwest coastline, where every year an annual number of more than 10,000 females meet to breed and later go on land to lay egg.
They have a reproduction trajectory known as scrambled trajectories. Europe's tortoise circuit is hardly ever seen by people. It is a natural park and its water bodies are preserved. It is part of the Shattered Islands, five regions that surround Madagascar like lunar orbits.
They have a surface area of only 16 sq. m., but their aggregate exclusively industrial area is 15,000x larger - a sea area almost as large as Texas. The key to the diversity of species on the island is that France must curb illicit fisheries and tortoiseoaching. Armed forces and a police station are present on several isles - including Europe - and navy vessels are patrolling their water.
Both of these isles cover a vast area of the oceans, whose troublesome streams and whirlwinds have been challenging seafarers for centururies. Today's oceanographers have found a way to explore this world without going to the seas. Due to the strong environmental link between nautical bird and aquatic organisms, they can be used as substitutes for open waters such as thuna.
Gannets and sea swallows build low-flying herds that follow sea activity from just above the area. Others follow the tracker and fly to high altitude to explore the area. In Bassas da India there are no seabird watching and no turtle laying shelters.
The Bassas is a young volcanic igneous body that still forms on its mother igneous mountain, a sea mountain that burst almost two nautical mile below the surfac. Wherever Europe has mangrove trees and a flat waterfall that is almost arid at low water, Bassas has no branch of flora and a 45-foot long waterfall - a huge freshwater tank full of young shark.
Almost all are Galapagosharks, a rarely found in the concentration around islets. Scientists wondering why Galapagosharks should be so prevalent in Bassas have proposed that the relatively sparse Bassas lagoon's confined biotopes favour these sharks, while in Europe's Laguna the existence of mangrove and seaweed provides sanctuary or shelter for other fish.
The Bassas provide a one-of-a-kind snap-shot in the story of a shark's lifetime - and an all too rare example of a young stout populace of a highly harvested specie. Bassas da India's low water shows the anchorages of vessels that have been destroyed on the coral wall over the years. Picture the horrors as the sunrise exposed the misery of the travellers - a crumbling vessel, an daunting dive, a lifeboat flushed or cracked.
However, these are only bullets in comparison to the true richness of Bassas da India and Europe - not the gold bars of old vessels, but the diversity of species that thrives on these small islets.
