Rich wildlife.  In addition to the richness and diversty of flora in the Lastovo archipelago, there we can also find a significant number of animal species (141 species of vertebrates, out of which 118 are endangered). Especially birds – Lastovo islands are a resting place for numerous migratory birds on their voyage from Europe to Africa during September and October, and back from Africa in the spring. Birds such as shearwaters, seagulls, yelkouan shearwaters, and even the rare Falco Eleonorae can be found there (on the rocks beneath the lighthouse Struga).
