Galapagos is one of the only places where pelagic species — species that live neither close to the bottom of the ocean nor near the shore — can be seen close to shore, such as tunas, spotted eagle rays, golden rays, and hammerhead sharks. No other site in the world showcases such a diversity of marine life forms. Additionally, geological and biological processes in Galapagos have helped create a high variety of habitats relative to other marine areas in the eastern Pacific. Coastal areas include vertical cliffs, sandy beaches, rocky shores, mangroves, coral reefs, lagoons, and salt flats (hypersaline panne habitats).
