The aves-pictures I made on three
trips to the island in the eighties and nineties.
During the last years the island was hit by several hurricanes. The surface changed very much; the island was even divided into 2 parts during several months. The green surface has almost disappeared as you observe on some pix.

The transportation always was provided by the
Venezuelan Navy. I participated thanks to invitations of the ARV or
RCV (the Venezuelan Amateur Radio Societies) to participate on these events. My job was to operate
as a radio-operator via satellite and on CW.
(For NON-Amateurs: CW = Morse-Telegraphy).
