Turks & Caicos is an island territory situated in the southeast of the Bahamans. It is part of the British Overseas Territory which consists of eight departments namely British Honduras, British St. Lucia, British Virgin Islands, and Curacao. British Honduras is the largest island of the BOT and it is a very important island as it houses the government and many of the commercial interests of British Honduras. The British Virgin Islands consists of three islands namely Guadeloupe, Martinique and Martinisca.
Turks and Caicos Islands have good marine life because the waters around the islands are extremely rich in oxygen and these islands are home to wide diversity of tropical fish including but not limited to sharks, turtles, sting rays, crocuses, frigate birds and many other species. Many marine birds such as the blue jay and black-cheeked albatross can be seen on certain nights in the Caribbean and in this area there are also reported to be large numbers of sharks. These sharks are said to prey solely on birds. In the past, Turks and Caicos Islands were colonized by French and Spanish colonialists. At present, there are about ten thousand people living on the islands. The population is spread across all of the islands in a large range of sizes.
