Selvagens Islands

Selvagens Islands

© Roy Digital Design

The Selvagens are composed of two small groups of islands, of which Selvagem Grande, Selvagem Pequena and Ilhéu de Fora are the most important. In 1971, the islands were declared a natural reserve to protect the marine avifauna. Because of the unique conditions offered for the nesting of marine bird species, these islands are also well known as an 'ornithological paradise'.

The Selvagens are uninhabited, apart for a handful of government officials to dissuade people from visiting the islands.

The Selvagens Islands are in the Atlantic Ocean about 285 km (180 miles) south from Maderia.
