Clipperton Island

We just learned about the country of Saba

Let's learn a little about the country of Clipperton Island!

This country is in the Pacific Ocean, west of Mexico.
It is about 6 square kilometers, and no one lives there.

This type of island is a coral atoll, which means it is a circle island with water in the middle called a lagoon.

Through the years different countries owned the island, like Mexico and Spain, but it was not a very good place to live so everyone left.
These days it is just a place that people sometimes visit to go fishing or scuba diving.
Because no one lives on the island, the wild animals like to visit the island, and some birds that were endangered have found a safe home there.
