The Revillagigedos are volcanic islands (shown is San Benedicto Island), with Socorro rising to more than 3,500 feet above sea level. Their isolation has resulted in a number of birds unique to the islands. Except for Roca Partida, the islands provide important breeding grounds for several species of sea turtles: leatherbacks, greens, hawksbills and ridley olives.Rachel Olander
