What can you do with a flower garden when you are stuck on a desert island with no plants? Well, I suppose that would depend on if you want to plant flowers or not. In any case, a flower garden in a desert of Mexico is a very intriguing sight.
The Flower Garden Gulf of Mexico has everything you need to make your flower garden of any kind really stand out and be noticed. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or an experienced gardener. In fact, there are lots of things that you can learn from these types of gardens that will help you grow your garden better. In this case, I will talk about the remote gems in the gulf of Mexico about 100 miles off the coast of Texas. If you don’t know what a remote gem is, don’t worry about it now because you won’t have to in a very short time.
The Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary lies one hundred miles off the east coast of Texas and is one of the most remote natural habitats in the gulf of Mexico. This natural habitat is so remote that a trip there would take almost two months. But that’s not all; when you get to this location you will also be among some of the largest populations of rare marine life in the world. And it doesn’t get any more beautiful than to witness the amazing migrating fish known as clownfish. These fish have been known to hit up to forty pounds in weight.
The flower garden banks national marine sanctuary is found among some of the richest coral reefs in the world. There are over three thousand species of tropical fish including sharks, dolphins, sea turtles, manta rays, turtles, and even a large number of sharks and rays in the marine waters of the Gulf of Mexico and gulf of Florida. In fact, there are over four hundred species of sharks in the Gulf of Mexico alone. But that’s not all. The waters also contain mangroves and burrows of giant clam, which produces an incredible sound and serve as mating sites for humpback whales.
The unique biological diversity of the gulf of Mexico allows for a rich diversity of reef life. Many reef structures like cinder cones and sponges are also found in abundance. Among the plants that can be found in the flower garden banks national marine sanctuary area are over twenty thousand different species of flora and fauna. This is a tremendous amount of plant life, which is continually replenished due to the constant influx of fresh water from rain forests or mountain springs.
Another attraction for scuba divers from all over the world in the gulf of Mexico and the southern Caribbean region is the coral reefs. Some thirty types of coral reefs can be located in the flower garden banks national marine sanctuary area. Most reefs are supported by mangrove trees. One reef called the Blue Angel is the largest of its kind in the entire Caribbean region. This reef is home to approximately five hundred fish and has been rated as one of the top ten diving locations in the world.
A third attraction for divers who travel the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean area is the Myriads. These birds actually have originated from the islands of Barbados, the Dominican Republic and Antigua. They are one of the most widespread birds in the Caribbean and typically seen at the end of branch trails where they feed along the edge of cliffs or in dense thickets. Although Myriads typically spend the daylight hours at the bird feeding sites, at night they take off into the night sky where they mate and raise their young.
On a hot summer day, you will see scores of thousands of flamingos flocking to the coastlines for a taste of the open sea breeze and to gather shells from offshore. They come to bathe in the rays of the sun, to socialize with fellow zebra finches and to feed on insects that hover around the water. While many birds visit twice yearly, others are not so lucky, since hurricanes along the Gulf of Mexico and other warmer bodies of water can often bring many species of birds to an end. In June of 2021, the federal government instituted the flower garden banks national marine sanctuary in the Gulf of Mexico. This protected area is a part of the National Marine Refuge system and is home to over one million acres of waters, shorelines, and vegetation.
This national park was established in an attempt to protect the many species that make up this area. Some of the most common species in the area include the blue lagoon blenny, the golden sanderfish, the black crappie, the red-eye tuna, and the grey snapper. There are also over 30 species of birds in the area, including the lesser bee-eater, the spotted flycatcher, the black heeled godbird, the red-necked godbird, the black-footed godbird, and the purple Martin. In fact, all types of birds and nocturnal animals are common visitors to the flower garden banks National marine sanctuary. The Gulf of Mexico has been home to a variety of sea life since prehistoric times, and the area offers a large variety of different crustaceans, invertebrates, and vertebrates.
For a closer look at some of the sea creatures that can be found in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the surrounding seaside areas, take a trip out to the Waverly Pier, a scientific visitor center where you can view and learn more about some of the sea animals that make their homes on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico and the nearby waters off the shores of Texas. The Pier is home to the West Flower Garden, a collection of flower plants native to Texas and south central Mexico. The center has interactive exhibits that will allow you to learn more about the natural inhabitants and the habitats they inhabit in their natural environment. You’ll find the West Flower Garden in the Waverly Pier, which is open daily. A few of the exhibits include the “Sharks Under the Gun”, “Jellybells in the Wild”, “Sharks at the Pier”, and “Million Dollar Reef”.
