Directions to Inagua National Park
When one hears the term, 'down-under,' the location that comes to mind is the sub-continent of Australia. But when one hears the term 'down-under' within the context of The Bahamas, the location that comes to mind is the Southern-most island in the Bahamian archipelago, Inagua.
Inagua National Park prides itself for being one of the few breeding and nesting places for the national bird of the Bahamas, the West Indian flamingo. Nothing quite prepares you for your first glimpse of these crimson-pink coloured birds, whom stand an astonishing 5 feet tall.
Encountering the flamingos is a moving experience, and yet, because of the island's remote location, only about 50 people have witnessed of them at the National Park.
In 1952, the population of Inagua's flamingos dwindled to about 5,000. The gorgeous birds were feverishly hunted for their meat, the tongue, meat, and feathers. The government established the 287-square-mile Inagua National Parkpark in 1963 and today, 70,000 flamingos nest on the island. For food the birds enjoy dinning at the plentiful salt ponds which supply their favorite meal---brine shrimp.
