The White Cheeked Pintail is another successful re-establishment of a species that had practically disappeared in the BVI until a few years ago.
Numbers on Necker have increased from just a couple of pairs in 2005 to approximately 350-400 pairs in 2012.
Along with the Stout Iguana and Red-Footed Tortoise, Necker Island proves to be the perfect sanctuary for Caribbean species once prolific in these islands.
