Ecotourism is very important to the community on this quaint, nine-square-mile island. The local government has established a program to enhance the natural environment, providing trees for residents to plant and nurture, which help to provide habitats for more than 21 bird species. During the Summer months, you'll find flocks of birds on the mainland at Gun Point and on several of the surrounding cays, such as Hog Cay, Johnson Cay, and Maycock Cay. They include various sea and shore birds like the Great Egrets, Reddish Egrets, Wilson’s Plovers, and Least Sandpipers. Butterflies migrate to the island in Spring during March and in Summer during August, which are ideal months for butterfly lovers to visit. And, while you're hiking around the island, you can see herds of wild goats roaming at Gun Point and near the airport in Duncan Town. Offshore coral reefs are great for snorkeling and kayaking to view the many marine species here, including turtles and colorful fish.
