Dear Coral-List Editor,

Would you please review the following entry:

Re: The UK government's three-month public consultation on extending 
conservation protections for the Chagos Islands and its surrounding 

Now is the time to consider the future of the world's largest coral 
atoll -- the Chagos Islands as the government has issued a consultation 
on the issue. 

This archipelago in the Indian Ocean has been compared to the Galapagos 
or Great Barrier Reef in terms of its importance as one of the greatest 
marine environments on the planet. It is one of the most pristine 
tropical marine environments on Earth; home to 17 species of breeding 
seabirds, about 1000 species of fish, around 220 species of coral and 2 
species of endangered turtles the area needs to be protected. Its 
protection is supported by the leading UK scientific societies and NGOs.

To find out more about this unique and special place and the proposition 
to declare it as the world's largest marine reserve please visit -
