Necker Island has always been a haven for some of the rarer species of plants and animals found in the Caribbean, and recent arrivals have cemented the island's reputation as a place where nature's diversity is truly celebrated.
From a standing start, Necker's flamingo population has reached almost 300, thanks to a successful breeding programme that last year saw the birth of 70 new chicks. Although flamingos are native to the British Virgin Islands their population had been steadily decreasing, so we were keen to provide a long-term, sustainable habitat.
From flamingos, soldier crabs and iguanas to our famous redfooted tortoise, Necker's animal family continues to grow, with some more recent newcomers joining the party: 35 Madagascan lemurs in addition to those already resident on island.
On the flock front we've also recently introduced Scarlet Ibis, White Cheeked Pintail and Roseate Spoonbills who are on the endangered list and all are making the most of the Necker environment! The Pintails have already produced offspring the first in the BVI for over 100 years.
