The Territory of Christmas Island is a territory of Australia in the Indian Ocean. It is called Christmas Island because it was discovered on Christmas Day.The island's geographic isolation and history of minimal human disturbance has led to a high level of endemism among its flora and fauna, which is of significant interest to scientists and naturalists. 63% of its 135 square kilometres (52 sq mi) is an Australian national park. There exist large areas of primary monsoonal forest
