French Polynesia seashells, freshwater and land shells iconography

I began to take an interest in the study and collection of seashells in the crystal clear waters of Tahiti and Moorea, and these species have always had my preference.

Here is a visual presentation of over 1000 species of shells from these remote archipelagos of the central Pacific.
