Mellon Wetlands Edit
- Main article: Mellon Wetlands.
Libertan Island is famous for its beautiful wetlands, called the Mellon Wetlands, which make up the Mellon Wetlands National Park. They exist because of the low, flat profile of the island, owing to the processes of erosion.
2008 scientific expedition Edit
In late 2008, funded by the King, 5 scientists conducted a detailed examination of the Mellon Wetlands. The scientists found out that 70% of the wetland is inhabited by a rare species of red Angelfish that is not native to the lands. Some of them are now on display in aquariums around the world. The scientists also found high levels of zinc and vitamin D in the water which explained the life growth of the weeds and trees in the wetlands. The scientists found out the average life span of the plants were:
- Trees - 189 years
- Weeds - 78 years
- Plants (such as Roses or flowers with leaves) - 39 years
