Twenty six coral atolls and their wildlife are part of a paradisiac and isolated island kingdom.
The Maldives are a paradise in the Indian Ocean. Swaying palms, white sandy beaches, and deep blue shallow lagoons with live coral reefs expose flowering gardens, where each organism is perfectly connected to the functioning of the surrounding microworld. From the wealth of this fascinating undersea paradise benefiting indigenous peoples for centuries, the Maldives are a vivid example of the interconnectedness of life on land and in the ocean.
