Phoenix Island, also known as Rawaki, is a collection of eight atolls and two underwater coral reefs that are located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, north of Samoa, east of the Gilbert Islands, and west of the Line Islands.
They are a component of the Kiribati Republic. The total size of their land is 28 square kilometers (11 sq mi). CantonIsland is the only island with significant significance for commerce (also called Abariringa).
The other islands are Manara, which used to be called Sydney, Enderbury, Nikumaroro, which used to be called Gardner, Rawaki, which used to be called Phoenix, Birnie, McKean, and Orona, which used to be called Hull.
About 120 varieties of coral and more than 500 species of fish may be found in the Phoenix Islands Protected Area, one of the biggest protected areas in the world. It was created in 2008. A few people live on Kanton Island, but none of the other islands in the Phoenix group are inhabited.
The bulk of the Micronesian population speaks Gilbertese (or I-Kiribati). The official language, English, is also extensively spoken, particularly in Tarawa. The majority of the remaining population is Kiribati Protestant, while more than half are Roman Catholics (Congregational).
The Mormon and Baha'i faiths are practiced by a small minority. Because so many people moved to South Tarawa's rapidly growing cities, where more than half of the population now lives, the population of most of the islands has stayed mostly the same for a long time.
