Fauna
In Fernando de Noronha there are a number of natural pools, which allow for direct contact with the rich and exotic local sea fauna. The islands' waters are full of fish, sponges, algae, shellfish and coral reefs, among which the most abundant one in the archipelago, Montastrea cavernosa.

At belvedere at the Baia dos Golfinhos (the “Dolphins Bay”), “rotator” dolphins can be observed in their natural environment. One of the most beautiful scenes on the island can be observed every day at sunrise, when hundreds of dolphins seek refuge in the calm and protected waters of the bay.

Sea turtles may also be seen from November onwards, as they group on the water surface, when adult males compete for female partners, thus initiating that specie's period of reproduction in the archipelago. The National Centre for the Conservation and Care of Sea Turtles - better known as the TAMAR/IBAMA Project – has, since 1984 been employing every effort to protect female turtles, their eggs and reproduction sites and is constantly evaluating their population. These animals are protected by the Decree that has established a prohibition on the capture, fishing and molesting of all species of turtles in Brazilian waters. The archipelago also hosts endemic species, animals brought in by man and, also, some migratory species.
