Birds of the Cayman Islands

€ 5.49 *

The Cayman Islands lie south of Cuba in the western Caribbean. There is a tropical savannah climate with pronounced dry and rainy seasons. In addition, the islands are regularly hit by hurricanes. The highest elevation is The Bluff on Cayman Brac at just 42 m above sea level. The special situation of the Cayman Islands has led to the development of several endemic bird subspecies and even one endemic species has emerged on Grand Cayman. However, this species, the Grand Cayman Thrush, has been considered extinct since 1938. In contrast, the national bird of the Cayman Islands, the Cuban Amazon subspecies caymanensis, is not endemic to the Cayman Islands as it is also found on Isla de la Juventud (Cuba). In addition to financial services, tourism is the most important industry in the Cayman Islands.

The Cayman Islands are located in the Atlantic Ocean. Legally the Cayman Islands belong to United Kingdom. Because of the number of bird species with restricted range occurring in this area, BirdLife International assigned it a Secondary Endemic Bird Area (EBA-S).
