Dive into Chagos on World Oceans Day

June 09, 2017


The Chagos Archipelago is a remote group of over 50 tiny islands in the Indian ocean and the world’s largest marine protected area. But now you can explore this biodiversity hotpost for the first time on the new Chagos Information Portal website - launched today - developed by Octophin Digital for the Chagos Conservation Trust.

Commonly known as ChIP, the information portal is a resource library of the science, conservation and research work conducted in the Chagos Archipelago. The brand new site also hosts species databases for native coral and birds and over a thousand other downloadable records collected by scientists about the area, from expedition data to underwater videos taken there. With the design of a new interactive map which allows users to explore the reefs, islands and many rare species who call Chagos home, CCT hope to engage the wider public in the wonders of Chagos.

Director of the Chagos Conservation Trust Helen Pitman said:

“Octophin Digital have produced a wonderful interactive website for CCT that takes users on a journey through one of the world’s most remote place.”
