Cabrera is home to a rich variety of marine and terrestrial flora and fauna, including a large number of species endemic to the Balearic Islands, not a few of which are only found in the archipelago and its waters.
The only national park in the Balearic Islands, the Parque Nacional Archipiélago de Cabrera is "the best example of unchanged insular ecosystems in the Spanish Mediterranean," according to the relevant Spanish Ministry of the Environment's web page.
The national park comprises Cabrera (island), its archipelago (another 18 or so islands and islets) and the sea around them, making it a combined marine-terrestrial nature reserve, though in fact the area of sea is six times that of the land.

The Parque Nacional Archipiélago de Cabrera is the best example of unchanged insular ecosystems in the Spanish Mediterranean, home to a rich variety of marine and terrestrial flora and fauna, including a large number of species endemic to the Balearic Islands, not a few of which are only found in the archipelago and its waters.
The star feature of Cabrera is its remarkable birdlife (in addition to being a national park, the archipelago is classified as a ZEPA, area of special protection for birds).
Although it is said that "the resources cannot support a great number of animals," and "the food chains are fairly simple with few predators," Cabrera's birds of prey include osprey, peregrine falcon and the rare Eleonara's falcon, which seems like quite enough predators to me, especially from a seabirdy point-of-view.
