|Aves Island is a very remote place,
located about 700 km north of the South American continent, but it has an impressive fauna.
A lot of birds are breeding
here or resting during
their annual migrations between North- and South-America.
Giant green sea-turtles come here from far away and leave their
eggs here at night.
The island's animals are observed and protected by FUDENA biologists, who a stationed here
in one month shift.
Aves is also a VERY DANGEROUS place during the hurricane
season, and it is often totally flooded. As a shelter a hurricane-resistant module
has been constructed to protect a small crew, which is living on the island.
On the following pages you will see some pictures, I
was able to shoot here:
