Isla Contoy has been a protected natural area since 1961, and was declared National Park in 1998. This is an uninhabited island, administrated by the National Commission of Protected Natural Areas (Comisión Nacional de Áreas Naturales Protegidas, CONANP), under the Secretariat of the Environment and Natural Resources (Secretaria del Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales, SEMARNAT).
It is the most important refuge for sea birds in the Mexican Caribbean. Its lagoons, mangroves and low jungles are home to 152 registered species of birds. Starting in Winter, more than 10,000 birds gather here, including frigates, cormorants, booby birds, herons, brown pelicans, and swallows.
In the Summer, three species of sea turtles arrive at the beaches of Convoy to spawn: the hawksbill turtle, the hickatee turtle, and the loggerhead sea turtle. 98 of the identified plant species, particularly the mangroves, cover 70% of the island’s surface. Nature is intact and hosting many species of birds, reptiles, crustaceans, and fish.
