Brazil: Fernando de Nóronha

Fernando de Nóronha is an archipelago of 21 islands and islets in the Atlantic Ocean, 354 km (220 mi) offshore from the Brazilian coast. The archipelago got its name from the Portuguese merchant Fernão de Loronha, to whom it was given by the Portuguese crown for services rendered regarding wood imported from Brazil. In 2001 UNESCO designated it as a World Heritage Site because of the importance of its environment.
