Abstract: It is important to establish benchmark reef locations that are remote from centres of human activity and free from anthropogenic disturbances, against which human impacts elsewhere can be assessed and rates of recovery evaluated. Aldabra Atoll in the southern Seychelles, is free of anthropogenic disturbances and an ideal location in which to study reefs and adjacent ecosystems. It has further significance with it being in the middle of a region which has been classified as having a number of reefs at high risk (Bryant et al., 1998) and has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
