Jardines de la Reina Marine Park is one of the biggest treasures of the Caribbean, in a bigger scale can also be considered as one of the world’s best-preserved marine areas. The importance of its protection goes beyond the Cuban waters jurisdiction, as the connectivity between marine ecosystems has international importance. The Cuban Government together with AVALON and AZULMAR (Branch of Marlin Marinas de Cuba) has been working to accomplish the protection tasks of the Park. Government’s institutions such as: ONIP, CITMA, CNAP, CNPFF, and the Center for Studies of Coastal Ecosystems of Ciego de Avila all have been key partners and have been directly involved in leading investigations and all the projects and surveys in the area.
The Jardines de la Reina MPA is home to the healthiest populations of Caribbean reef and silky sharks in the Caribbean. Blacktip, Caribbean reef, great hammerhead, lemon nurse, silky and whale sharks are present, though whale shark encounters are more common from September to December
