ANGUILLA'S WILDLIFE

Anguilla boasts more than 20 wetlands on the main island with a wide variety of flora and fauna.  There are over 130 species of birds that live here for all or part of the year.  During the peak migratory periods, it is not uncommon to see a wide variety of species as they make their way to and from their breeding grounds in the north. 

Its spectacular offshore cays play host to a number of locally and regionally important seabird breeding colonies.

Further, Anguilla has five designated marine parks including: Dog Island, Prickly Pear Cays, Sandy Island, Little Bay and Shoal Bay extending to Island Harbour.   Established in 1993 by the Government of Anguilla, these parks are home to a number of species of endangered turtles, colorful reef fish and corals, sharks, migrating whales and dolphins.
