Redonda island: a remarkable conservation success story

From a desolate wasteland to a thriving sanctuary, Redonda Island’s incredible transformation offers a beacon of hope for conservation efforts. In 2016, a dedicated team of conservationists began their mission to rid the island of invasive rats and goats. The results have been nothing short of astonishing, with native flora and fauna reclaiming their habitat.

Now, in September 2023, Antigua and Barbuda proudly declares the establishment of the Redonda Ecosystem Reserve, spanning an impressive 30,000 hectares of land and sea. This success story sets a promising precedent for other Caribbean restoration projects, demonstrating that nature’s resilience knows no bounds.
