About us

Welcome to Wildlife of Statia! As we work on our upcoming book about the animals of this beautiful island, we will be posting features about wildlife and updates on our progress. Thank you for visiting and be sure to come back regularly for updates!


We are working to produce a guide to the unique wildlife of Statia. When completed, The Incomplete Guide to the Wildlife of Sint Eustatius will feature color photos and detailed information about the entire range of wildlife on Statia, from mammals and birds to insects and spiders.


Like all islands, Statia has a unique community of wildlife, including both native species and migrants that travel thousands of miles to winter here. This book will be the first guide to the wildlife of the island, uncovering a rich natural heritage that deserves to be celebrated and shared.
