"In an age when we experience so much of our world through glass—screens, windows, windshields—birds are a vital connection to the wild. They reach across any barrier, flitting, surprising, and dazzling, always there to refresh my sense of wonder." — Thor Hanson, Author
Aruba's magnificent natural beauty extends to its unique flora and fauna. 270 different bird species are registered in Aruba and we are proud to partner with Nature Photographer, Michiel Oversteegen of Birdwatchingaruba.com to bring you some of the wonderful images he has taken over the years.
Our birds and other wildlife thrive all over the island with the help of humans like you. For a transformative experience, we recommend hikes in Arikok Park, Birdwatching Tours with Michiel and other activities to enjoy the island's natural beauty, but ask you to please not partake in ATV or Jeep or Bike tours off road or designated trails which disturbs or even destroys nesting grounds and the opportunity for future generations to enjoy the extraordinary animal, plants and pollinators present today. Overlooking the importance of nature, as we go about our busy lives, makes it easier for it to disappear right in front of our eyes. Therefore we thank you for being mindful and present of all the living things around you.
