Charter Yacht Sublime - Anegada Flamingos

Did you know that the British Virgin Island of Anegada has flamigos? Real ones... not the type that your neighbor has in his front yard :)

Stephanie & Brian owner-operators of the charter yacht SUBLIME, a 72-foot Irwin ketch that charters in the Virgin Islands, sent us the above photos.

Anegada is known for its miles of white sand beaches, the large salt ponds which cover much of the west end of the island, and unique fauna. In the 1830s, thousands of Caribbean Flamingos lived in these ponds, but they were hunted for food and feathers throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries and had pretty much disappeared by the 1950s. They are now being re-established into the ponds.  The Conservation Agency has a good article about it: Flamingo Reintroduction to Anegada, British Virgin Islands.

Reminds me of when we were moored in the south of France. Bob & I used to pass flocks of flamingos while riding our bikes along the chemin de halage between Frontignan and Sete. Good times :)

The charter yacht Sublime, a 72-foot Irwin ketch, is available for sailing and liveaboard scuba diving yacht charters this season in the Virgin Islands through August 15, 2013.
