    Management Notes for this Location:
    Cats and rats, as on Zirku Island, are now subject to a control programme.
    Location Notes:
    The island, with an area of about 10 square kilometres, has a barren central hilly spine rising to 66 metres and is geologically the higher part of an underlying salt dome. Once a centre of the oil industry, its facilities are now being de-commissioned, and an ecological restoration programme may follow this.
