Jumby Bay is home to a protected and cultivated flock of sheep that has inhabited the island for over 400 years! The short-coated, black-and-white Persian breed is much larger in size and stature than the sheep found on mainland Antigua. You may spot them grazing around the island or pay them a visit at the Jumby Bay Farm. Also taking refuge at the farm are a chatty flock of chickens and red-footed tortoise.
At the heart of the island lies a stunning five-acre waterfowl sanctuary. This undisturbed natural world is home to a rare mix of beautiful tropical birds, including graceful egrets, playful bananaquits, whistling ducks, hummingbirds and the marvelous blue pelican.
