Maldives - Mal' - Aerial of an uninhabited island

An aerial view of a completely uninhabited, deserted island seen from a regional aircraft passing overhead atolls and islands, an hour's flying time north of Mal', capital of the Indian Ocean Republic of the Maldives. We see the perfectly clear blue sea surrounding a tiny flat island of white coral beach sand, ringing tropical vegetation and scrub that is in jeopardy to rising sea levels as global warming makes sea level locations like this vulnerable to flooding. The Maldives comprise of twenty-six atolls, featuring 1,192 coral islands of which 80 are holiday resorts with 200 inhabited by indigenous communities. This Islamic nation of 298 sq km (115 sq miles), lie seven hundred kilometres (435 miles) south-west of Sri Lanka. (Photo by In Pictures Ltd./Corbis via Getty Images)
