Caribbean Expedition: Survey 13
Anguilla is an overseas British territory, located in the northern section of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles of the Caribbean. The main island of Anguilla is a flat, low-lying island of coral and limestone. The territory also includes a number of nearby smaller islands and cays.
The name Anguilla derives from the word for "eel" in many european languages, possibly because of the island's eel-like shape. Anguilla is known for having spectacular and ecologically important coral reefs so the team are looking forward to surveying the area to wrap up our 2013 Caribbean expedition.
