Welcome to this site which focuses completely on the nature found on the island of Curaçao. This island lies 150 kilometres north of Venezuela in the southern (Dutch) Caribbean. This island is situated in a dry ("xerophytic") zone which starts in the Westside at a point southwest from Barranquilla in Colombia, enhances the Colombian peninsula of La Guajira until Maracaibo in the south and continues over the peninsula of Paraguaná to encompass all the islands of the southern Caribbean until Isla Margarita in the east. The island is situated at 12 degrees 15 minutes North and 69 degrees West
This semi-arid island of course has its own eco-systems which contains several bird species, plant species and other animal-species. In the sea surrounding the islands lots of fishes, corals and other animals are to be found.
Several keen wildlife photographers are sharing their pictures on this site, in order to show you the beauty and splendour of wildlife in this part of the Caribbean.
