Vertical Reefs of the Galápagos

Vertical Reefs of the Galápagos | 4K ROV Highlights

Oct. 25 2023

Dive into a world of unparalleled natural beauty and biodiversity in this ROV highlight reel from the #CliffReefs expedition. Our awe-inspiring journey took us through two of the most pristine and protected areas in the world, where we were fortunate to document amazing displays of nature’s splendor.

The expedition’s multidisciplinary team worked to map and characterize these extraordinary ecosystems while defining environmental drivers. As the Galápagos Islands are a protected area with little human impact, its cliff-dwelling coral reefs likely represent these ecosystems in their pristine condition and can serve as a baseline for understanding change.
