Blooming Socotra! Collection of images from blooming island. Socotra is considered the jewel of biodiversity in the Arabian Sea. In the 1990s, a team of United Nations biologists conducted a survey of the archipelago's flora and fauna. They counted nearly 700 endemic species, found nowhere else on earth; only New Zealand, Hawaii, New Caledonia, and the Galápagos Islands have more impressive numbers. 307 out of the 825 (37%) plant species on Socotra are endemic, i.e., they are found nowhere else on Earth.
