Little Inagua National Park

Little Inagua National Park

Overview

Remote inaccessible and with no fresh water, Little Inagua is by far the largest uninhabited island in the Wider Caribbean. The island exists in a natural undisturbed state and the biodiversity implications and values of this are enormous. Ocean currents flow through the Bahamas from southeast to the northwest. As a result, Little Inagua is upstream of the rest of the country. Its surrounding waters contribute to the supply of fisheries, eggs, larvae and sub adults that are swept into the other parts of the Bahamian marine territory. Park designation increases the percentage of marine ecosystem under protection for fishery replenishment purposes. Additionally, Little Inagua is a documented nesting location for critically endangered sea turtle species.
