Egg Island

Egg Island

Egg Island sits off the coast of North Eleuthera in the Bahamas, and is the last undeveloped island in a chain that served as the landing spot for the first European settlers who shipwrecked on the Devil's Backbone reef in the summer of 1648. The island holds cultural, historical and environmental significance not only for local residents, but for the Bahamian people as a whole. Egg Island has a variety of healthy ecosystems that host a spawning aggregation site for the grouper and a nesting site for sea turtles. Egg Island is under constant threat of sale or lease by the government until it's granted protected "park" status, but conservationists and stakeholders are hopeful that international attention will provide enough encouragement for the Bahamian government to make the motion to officially protect the beautiful island and the marine life it supports.
