Vor einigen Jahren wurden diese 25 Meeres-Schutzzonen und die 2 geschützten Inseln vom Umweltministerium als Schutzzonen eingerichtet und überwacht. Seit einiger Zeit ist der Ausbau der Schutzzonen leider ins stocken geraten, dabei gäbe noch so viel schützenswerte Riffe, wie das Hausriff von Kandholhudhoo im Ari Atoll und Umaru's Place im Addu Atoll ...

These 25 marine protected areas and the 2 protected islands were established and supervised by the environmental ministry as protected areas some years ago. Unfortunately, the development of the protected areas is break off for some time, still would give so much reefs, as the house reef of Kandholhudhoo in the Ari Atoll and Umarus Place in the Addu Atoll.

ein paar Fakten - a little bit Facts

Die größte Artenvielfalt auf den Malediven lebt in den Korallenriffen. Mehr als 1096 Fische, 400 Mollusken, 300 Schalentiere und 209 Korallenarten wurden auf den Malediven gezählt. Eine dieser Arten lebt nur auf den Malediven. Die Inseln sind typische Koralleninseln mit einer hohen Lebensdichte im Meer, aber nur wenig Leben auf dem Land. Es wurden ungefähr 418 verschiedene Arten von Pflanzen gefunden, wovon 220 wahrscheinlich nur auf den Malediven leben. 198 Pflanzenarten sind für die Landwirtschaft und künstlerische Zwecke eingeführt worden. Auf den Malediven wurden 200 Vogelarten gezählt, wovon 5 Arten endemisch sind. Auf vielen Inseln gibt es auch kleine Feuchtbiotope.

On the Maldives the greatest variety of species lives in the coral-reefs. More than 1096 fish, 400 molluscs, 300 bowl animals and 209 species of coral were counted in the Maldives and one of these types lives only in the Maledive Islands. The islands are typical coral islands with a high life density in the sea but only little life density in the country. Approximately 418 different species were found by plants, on what 220 probably live only in the Maldives. 198 plant species have been imported for the farming and artistic purposes. In the Maldives were counted 200 kinds of bird by what 5 types are endemic. There are also small damp biotopes on many islands.
