  Site Description  
  There are seven principal islands in the Togian islands: Una-una, Batudaka, Togian, Talatakoh, Waleakodi, Weleabahi, and Puah islands. All of these islands are hilly and some are mountainous, and they are surrounded by a number of small limestone islands and islets. The archipellago lies on a plateau less than 200 m deep, except for Tampan island which is a steep, rocky island lying west of Batudaka and separated from it ba a channel more than 200 me deep. The Togian islands have extensive areas of well developed and little damaged coral reef, including atoll, barrier, fringing and patch reef types. The area is valuable for a number of endangered and rare animals including Green and Hawksbill Turtles, Coconut crabs, 4 species of Tridacnid clams, Estuarine crocodiles and the Babirusa. The islands are very beautiful and have great potential for future tourism development. Coral diversity varies little among the different reef forms. A total of 51 genera and subgenera and 115 species were found at seven sites. All the main islands and some smaller ones are inhabited. Subsitence fishing and small-scale commercial fishing for fish, molluscs, and holothurians are important. Non-resident occasionally visits the islands to collect commercial valuable shells. Coconut Crabs are occasionally collected by residents of the islands and fishermen from outside the area. Turtle and turtle eggs are collected by the islanders.  
  Site Location
