LOCATIONIsland of Prvić was declared a special reserve for its many special natural features, in particular, its rare flora and fauna that can be found in no other location in the Adriatic, with rocky landscapes battered by gale-force bora winds and salty water. Nesting on cliffs rising out of the sea is a characteristic of griffon vultures in Croatia. Beside Griffon vultures, some other protected species and NATURA species are present in the waters and coastal areas of the reserve, such as seahorse (Hippocampus spp), the Mediterranean monk seal (Monachus monchus), loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta), pen shell (Pinna nobilis) and a number of protected species of green, brown and red algae and coral species.
