Aldabra

Aldabran Giant Tortoise

A brief but delightful video comprising a selection of footage from an exhibition formerly at the Paris Museum National D’ Histoire Naturelle, Aldabra, Treasure of Biodiversity is a product of the Foto Natura Expedition team. It reviews in encapsulated form the distinctive fauna, including the Aldabra Giant Tortoise and other species, which inhabit the pristine and uninhabited complex of islets that form Aldabra, the world’s largest coral atoll, in the Seychelles Islands, north of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. Extremely isolated, Aldabra is virtually untouched by humans, and has been designated a World Heritage Site.
