The lagoons of New Caledonia are a series of six marine clusters that feature diversity of coral and associated ecosystems. New Caledonia is a French Pacific Ocean archipelago that is home to some of the most extensive reef systems in the world. It is a place of exceptional beauty with beautiful vegetation and a host of marine species.

The lagoons of New Caledonia are some of the few European waters where you will find marine species such as the endangered turtles, whales and dugongs. The dugong population found here is the third largest in the whole world.

The reefs found in the New Caledonia Lagoons forms the third largest reef system after the Great Barrier Reef of Australia and The Belize Barrier Reef in Belize. The ecosystem is an outstanding example of an ecosystem that sustains marine life and to some extent, the terrestrial life. The ecosystem displays an intact ecosystem that has healthy populations of the top marine predators, and a large diversity of other marine fauna. New Caledonia lagoon occupies a pedestal spot in the providing important information of history of the Oceania.

European scientists have literally camped in this region since the 18th century trying to identify the various flora and fauna species. The botanist, zoologists, marine biologists and geologist reckon that this is one of the most important places on earth in terms of evolution of species.
