The Culebra National Wildlife Refuge is a National Wildlife Refuge in Puerto Rico. It is part of the Caribbean Islands National Wildlife Refuge Complex, which is a unit of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
More than 50,000 seabirds of 13 species find their way to this dot in the ocean every year to breed and nurture their young, with the largest Sooty Tern nesting in the Culebra archipelago being found on Peninsula Flamenco.
Many other bird species permanently call Culebra home while three species of sea turtles, including leatherback and hawksbill, use the waters surrounding Culebra and nest on refuge beaches.
