Southern Indian Ocean Islands tundra

WWF Abstract

If you think of going south for warm temperatures, think again! While the northern parts of the Indian Ocean are known for their warm tropical waters, the southern Indian Ocean stretches to Antarctica and is home to the icy Southern Indian Ocean Islands Tundra ecoregion. The rocky, snowy, and icy islands of this ecoregion are home to a variety of sub-Antarctic species, such as albatrosses, penguins, and seals.
