Little Inagua National Park
Little Inagua, designated a National Park by the Bahamas Government in 2002, is the largest uninhabited island in the Wider Caribbean and exists in a remote, natural, undisturbed state. It is a documented nesting location for critically endangered sea turtle species.
Its surrounding waters contribute to the supply of fisheries, eggs, larvae, and sub-adults that are swept into the remaining Bahamian marine territory. Park designation includes the marine area to 100 fathoms, increasing the percentage of marine ecosystem under protection for fisheries' replenishment purposes. The approximate area of this National Park is 31,600 acres.
