Flora and fauna of the Nicobar Islands

Visitors to The Nicobar Islands can look forward to wondrous treats when it comes to wildlife.

In fact, three islands in the area have been declared as wildlife sanctuaries.

The islands are home to a wide diversity of birds and fowl. They also have reptiles such as Pythons and crocodiles. However, it is the marine life that is most abundant.

The ecosystem in The Nicobar Islands is quite delicate, however. This factor is even more important since the tsunami hit in December of 2004. Considerable damage to the environment occurred and until now, studies are still being conducted regarding this.
