Socotra (31) More files... by Mark Moffett
Isolated Socotra, 220 miles from mainland Yemen is home to a variety of strange plants and animals uniquely adapted to the hot, harsh, windswept island. Built to withstand the drought conditions of the island the endemic plants are stunted, spindly things that are tremendously efficient at storing water and the animals are equally resourceful. With tourism increasing 2,900% over ten years this fragile island ecosystem and the lifestyles of the native people is threatened.
