Hall Island / Alaska (USA)
Hall Island lies around 350 km off the west coast of Alaska, near the larger island of St. Matthew, in the Bering Sea. These islands provide an ideal, albeit small, habitat for arctic-maritime flora and fauna.
The tundra vegetation provides an ideal, world-largest refuge for immense herds of sea otters, sea lions and walruses. Also varied bird colonies found here in the cliffs on Hall Island a home, including auks, kittiwakes and pelagic cormorants. Therefore, the island is a paradise for ornithologists. In the waters off the island frolic gray whales and Steller sea lions.
