Mother Nature has been extra generous to Andaman & Nicobar Islands in endowing it with phenomenally rich biodiversity which is displayed in its varied assemblage of flora and fauna on land and in water surrounding the islands.  Their uniqueness lies in high degree of endemism, particularly, in avifauna.  Forests cover about 84% of the islandsí geographical area.

           The coastline of all the islands adds up to 1962 kms in length.  It is bordered with luxuriant mangroves and magnificent fringing coral reefs. 

           A clean and pollution-free environment and lush green forests of the islands surrounded by blue sea water make Andaman & Nicobar Islands one of the most favoured destinations for eco-tourism.
