The Sea Turtle and The Reefs

Barbados is known for its beautiful reefs, which are an essential part of the island's marine ecosystem for protecting our famous white sand beaches. Along with the local tourism community, we encourage visitors to dive and snorkel responsibly, so that the health of the reefs is not compromised.

The island is also renowned for its sea turtle populations, particularly hawksbill and the endangered leatherback turtles, which play a vital role in the marine ecosystem. We are pleased to support the restoration of the turtle population alongside the Barbados Sea Turtle Project.

Island Flora and Fauna

Guests should be respectful of the island’s vegetation and wildlife that contribute to our unique tropical ecosystem. Please avoid littering and use the many public bins provided by government programs.

We also ask guests to be kind to our animals, especially the Barbados green monkeys seen islandwide who are shy but mischievous creatures. Feeding wild animals, including monkeys, can have negative consequences as altering their natural diet disrupts the balance of their ecosystem and impacts population dynamics. Also In Barbados, it is generally not advisable to take pictures of monkeys on a leash or to support such activities. Monkeys are wild animals that should not be restrained by leashes or kept as pets.
