Jeju, the treasure island of environmental assets
The island of Jeju is known for its unique nature and biodiversity and was visited by more than eight million tourists in 2012. It is part of the New Seven Natural Wonders of the World and is the only place on Earth to receive all three UNESCO designations in natural sciences: UNESCO Biosphere Reserve (2002), UNESCO World Natural Heritage (2007) and UNESCO Geopark (2010) . The sea off Gangjeong in the south of the island is home to rare soft corals and is one of the most important habitats for the endangered indo-pacific bottlenose dolphin.
