Their rich coastal habitats lost significant seabird colonies and marine communities. Their northerly position provides a major land fall for migratory birds. In human terms, traditional lifestyles of fishing and crafting vie with modern industries, such as oil, leading to conflicts of both human and wildlife conservation dimensions. This book paints a broad picture of the natural and manmade environments.
