Sea slug, Vanuatu

Vanuatu's marine biodiversity is threatened by over harvesting of fish resources and water pollution, which is a serious issue especially in Port Vila harbour due to poor sewage and a spike in population in recent years. Accessible, lowland areas of the larger islands are sites of the largest human settlements, and it is these areas where there is the most pressure on the resources and the highest cost for the environment.
