Kota Kinabalu: Natural History Publications, 2005. Quarto, dustwrapper, colour photographs.
On the northeast coast of Sabah, Malaysia, lie three seemingly insignificant islands. Ignored by the rest of the world until the 1980s, it has only recently been discovered that these islands combined play host to one of the most diverse underwater ecosystems in the world. From tiny pygmy seahorses and giant manta rays, to fragile coral reefs and the mysterious ‘Turtle Tomb', this marine treasure triangle has it all.
This book documents this remarkable ecosystem. It is the product of five passionate divers who have spent the past seven years living and diving on and around these islands. With its exceptional images and detailed text, this book provides a fascinating insight into the day-to-day existence and activities of the flora and fauna that make these islands their home.
