Culebra National Wildlife Refuge

Culebra Wildlife: The Sooty TernCulebra may be the most precious jewel in the treasure chest of Caribbean refuges. More than 50,000 seabirds of 13 species find their way to this dot in the ocean every year to breed and nurture their young, with the largest Sooty Tern nesting in the Culebra archipelago being found on the Flamenco Peninsula.

Many other bird species permanently call Culebra home while three species of sea turtles use the waters surrounding Culebra and nest on refuge beaches.

The Culebra refuge is comprised not only of the island of Culebrita (it's incorrect, as of 10/2010 in Google maps) but also of the Flamenco peninsula, Luis Peña and many other places on Culebra's archipelago (most of the areas in our maps sesction are correct)
