9 NOVEMBER 1997. COCOS ISLAND, COSTA RICA: CORAL

Stuffed full of fish and lobsters, highest density of whitetip reef sharks I've ever seen anywhere, one new transpacific species, found a new Cocos endemic wrasse that I will describe, reefs recovering well with NO bleaching from current ENSO, 24 spectacular waterfalls, need to eliminate pigs, deer, rats, cats, goats. --Ross Robertson <ROBERTSR@naos.si.edu> via N.
