The aim of this publication is simple - in a rational, scientifically robust way, it puts the spotlight on a Caribbean network of Internationally important biodiversity sites - "Important Bird Areas" (IBAs). In a region that is exceptionally rich in endemic birds, seabirds, waterbirds, and species already at risk of extinction, IBAs are an objective expression of which places in the Caribbean are the most important for these birds and why. By highlighting the significance of IBAs, the goal is to secure their long-term conservation - to ensure that these remnants of paradise are not lost.

The Important Bird Area program in the Caribbean started in early 2001. Inventories were compiled for the following countries and territories, and are presented in this IBA:

Anguilla
Antigua and Barbuda
