Plants and Flowers
Agaves, called sisal locally, were commercially grown until the 1920’s. Today sisal plants – Agave – can be seen around the islands growing wild and some have been planted in the Museum Garden.
Native plants that can be found include the Turks Head Cactus, Sea-Island Cotton, a wide variety of Orchids, Native Oak and Mahogany (both used for boat building), Mangroves, Lignum Vitae, silver and green Buttonwood, Sea Grape, wild yellow Allamanda, Acacia, Sea Oats and Cordia.
There are also a wide range of plants that have been brought here such as Aloe Vera, Coconut and wild Pomegranate. G

Bird Watching
The salt ponds and inland marshes serve as excellent feeding grounds for resident and migratory birds. Search for Great Blue Herons, Flamingos, Osprey and Pelicans alongside Egrets, Terns, Frigates, Boobies and other water birds.

As part of the National Parks system more than twelve small cays have been set aside and protected for breeding grounds. 170 species of bird can be found in the Turks and Caicos Islands from Pelicans and Flamingos to Osprey and Cuban Crows. These bird species provide a paradise for ornithologists.
