Nestled in a remote area of the North Pacific Ocean, Avonozwich is a group of islands interconnected by a network of ice-bridges. The origin of these islands have been shrouded in controversy since its discovery in the mid-1600s by the infamous Aventadores, a group of Portuguese explorers backed by British gold to betray its native country. Due to its geographical properties, Avonozwich is rich in diverse foliage fueled by evaporated salt ions in the humid air. It is speculated to have over two thousand undiscovered families of trees and five thousand unfound species of animals. The islands of Avonozwich have become prevalent since the beginning of the 21st century because of its unique evolutionary environment and the widespread acceptance of global warming. Recently uncovered British documents from the Portuguese expedition show sketches of indigenous animals primarily covered in fur. From the Tricorn, a descendant of the Triceratops, to the Smallfoot and the Matizyahoo, early drawings of more than 500 species show that 90% of the animals were covered in some kind of coat to manage the cold temperatures of the north. An international collaborative study done on the island in September of 2007 to assess and evaluate the effects of global warming has documented the loss or shortening of fur in many of the animals. Foliage is richer than ever as the rising ocean levels have saturated the soil with nutrients but the environment has changed much compared to early Portuguese sketches. Furthermore, scientists have theorized that Avonozwich was once a whole land mass instead of an accumulation of islands. In an effort to determine the rising water levels, ultrasonic scans revealed evidence of land underneath the ice bridges. It has been speculated by many that the islands of Avonozwich will disappear within the next 75 years.
