    Area description

    this area includes Lastovo and some desolated islets around it. These small, low and mainly bare islets represent the most significant nesting site of Audouin's Gull in Croatia. The islet of Zaklopatica shelters the only authenticated nesting site of Levantine Shearwater (also known as Yelkouan Shearwater).

    Lastovo, mostly covered with allepo pine forest, is a favourite night roost of migratory birds on they way over the Adriatic Sea. This is a nature park.
