  • Some corals have lived for centuries at the fringes of Mauritius.
  • The wildlife at risk include the seagrasses blanketing sand in the shallow waters, clownfish darting around coral reefs, mangrove trees corralling the coastline with their tangled root systems, and the critically endangered Pink Pigeon, endemic to the island.
  • Altogether, Blue Bay Marine park counts 38 types of coral and 78 species of fish.
