The Jewel and the Crown of the Indian Ocean
by Wolfgang Grulke
About the Book
Aldabra is the world's largest raised coral atoll and one of the most remote places in the Indian Ocean. It is home to almost 90% of the world's giant tortoises, a largely unexplored marine wonderland and a haven for birds, including the last flightless bird in the Indian Ocean.
This book is the visual diary of our two expeditions to Aldabra and the surrounding islands of Assumption, Astove and Cosmoledo.
