160 islands belong to this national park. The protected area of almost 200 square kilometres was named after the island of Vilsandi. It was declared the first nature reserve of the Baltic countries as early as 1910, together with six flat, rocky offshore islets - the "Vaikariffen". Thus began the protection of a large and very diverse community of birds. In spring thousands of birds of passage rest in the ice-free waters before travelling on the Arctic tundra. Seagulls, terns and eider ducks brood in large colonies on the limestone islands, and a few pairs of Nordic white cheek geese also stay here.The little island of Innarahu is apparently the largest breeding place for grey seals in the Baltic Sea.
