072910V2 Coast Header
In Brazil, 1,000 kilometers north of Rio de Janeiro, is the most diverse concentration of marine life in the South Atlantic. Here, people have lived in harmony with the sea for centuries. As in so much of the world, the balance of this unique ecosystem is under pressure. A small team of Conservation International staff have not only helped protect this area, but extend its boundaries. This is the story of their success—from the coast to the ocean. Dive into Abrolhos.
