Biodiversity is usually structured into three constituent components: species diversity, genetic diversity and ecosystem diversity (Hooper et al., 2005). These components interact and influence each other, highlighting the fact that the term biodiversity goes beyond just richness of species (Hooper et al., 2005). Biodiversity or Biological diversity is a term that describes the variety of living beings on earth. In short, it is described as degree of variation of life. Biological diversity encompasses microorganism, plants, animals and ecosystems such as coral reefs, forests, rainforests, deserts etc.

Powdered soft white sands and tiny grains of crushed red pipe corals scoured the entire stretch of this paradise. Travelers in search of isolation and solitude in a beautiful hideaway would find Trinity Island a delight. Going to Trinity Island entails a different kind of adventure because reaching the place is not as easy as it looks on the map.
