NATURAL WONDERS OF ANTIGUA

Antigua is a beautiful island with a varied natural history. As with many of the islands, animal & plant species are often not indigenous, either having found their way here by being blown on the tradewinds, or brought here by ship. We are building a list of the most common flora, fauna and sealife and thank Peter Duce for his fantastic photography helping us to bring this information to life.
