The Anambas Islands are renown for their tremendously rich biological diversity. It's not for nothing that the Anambas archipelago has been called an environmentalist and ecotourism paradise; as recent as in 2002, new species of molluscs, crustaceans and fish were discovered.
In fact, due to the territory's remoteness and still mostly pristine state, subsequent biological surveys may well divulge additional as yet unknown species of flora and fauna, terrestrial and aquatic.
The Anambas' varied ecosystems are home to rare species of primates, nearly-extinct species of fish and turtles, as well as a considerable number of tree species, including mangrove trees. Rather famously, even Rafflesia has been found to thrive in Anambas.
Anambas, Ecotourism hotspot
Other wildlife that can be found in abundance in and around Anambas are sea birds, reef fish such as grouper and Napoleon wrasse, dolphins, Hawksbill and Green turtles, as well as numerous benthic species, including stomatopods.
Given the region's rich biodiversity and plentiful habitats, it's safe to say that Anambas may in the not-too-distant future well become a veritable ecotourism capital of Asia.
