Birds of the Cocos Island

€ 3.99 *

Cocos Island is about 550 km from Costa Rica's mainland. It has long been a national park and, due to its ecological uniqueness, is now also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Apart from the rangers, there are no permanent residents there. The island can only be reached by sea and with the permission of the park rangers. The climate is humid and oceanic. The landscape is mountainous and the highest elevation reaches 575 m asl. These conditions create over 200 waterfalls. Not only are there large nesting colonies of seabirds on the island, but there are also three endemic bird species.

Cocos Island is located in the Pacific Ocean. Legally Cocos Island belongs to Costa Rica. Because of the number of bird species with restricted range occurring in this area, BirdLife International assigned it a Primary Endemic Bird Area (EBA-P).
