Ocean Ports of Call

Desertas Islands - Madeira, Portugal Highlights:
Nature reserve, Zino’s petrel, Monk seal
The Desertas Islands lie southeast of Madeira in the Atlantic Ocean, a three island grouping comprising Deserta Grande, Bugio and Chão Islet. The high, long, and rocky islands of the group are barren of soil, and the only wildlife consists of about sixteen bird species, eight being seagoing, and a scarce population of non native goats, rabbits, and rodents, brought from Portugal by the mariners who first touched the rocky shores. The Fea's petrel can be seen here during nesting season and they are home to the critically endangered Zino's petrel and a small population of the endangered Monk seal.
