Bird Island, also called the Guano Platform, sits in the Atlantic Ocean and is the only place on the Namibian coast where Great White Pelicans breed regularly. Cape Cormorants, White-breasted Cormorants, and Crowned Cormorants also breed and roost on this productive platform.
There is a shipping channel behind the platform. The platform is between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay in the Erongo Region of Namibia, Africa.
