In the Galápagos Islands, abundant coral cover only exists in relatively few places, most notably the far northern islands of Darwin and Wolf, and at a few sites in the central and southern islands ; other locations generally support scattered epilithic corals in areas dominated by rocky reefs (Glynn and Wellington, ).

In these areas However, ironically, the same phenomenon that Andersen speculates might bring the corals to this region could also be responsible for its devastation – the & El Niño events nearly obliterated coral life in the Galapagos Islands, and the El Niño Our first reef community stop in the Reefscape project was the Galápagos Islands in December We found that ocean events such as El Niño can wipe out huge areas of reef, yet coral survival The corals of the Galapagos Islands range from true reef-building corals to scattered coral colonies.

Our goal was to evaluate how well these corals have recovered from past El Niño events, especially those that led to widespread coral bleaching and coral :// /pacific-ocean/galapagos-islands.

The Galapagos Islands, located in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, are an archipelago of volcanic islands surrounded by a vastly diverse ecosystem of large populations of marine life and coral communities.

These coral reefs are being threatened with Coral from the genera Hydrozoanthus, believed to be new to the Galapagos and science. The reefs support thousands of species, including many rare and endemic corals Coral I and Coral II Galapagos Motor Yachts Extended Cruises.
