The permanent exhibition in the Visitor Centre, stretching through two stories of the former Biševo elementary school, introduces the flora and fauna of the island, as well as the most important geological and geographical features of Biševo.
Here you can find out which are the protected areas of nature on Biševo island – the Blue Cave, the Monk Seal Cave, learn about the coralligenous reefs and the importance of Posidonia seagrass, peek into the avifauna and herpetofauna of Biševo and the Vis archipelago, see the examples of the island’s flora and get to know the common bottlenose dolphin and other large vertebrates of the Vis archipelago, as well as get a glimpse of the rich historic and cultural heritage of Biševo island.
So far, a total of 485 plant species and subspecies have been recorded on Biševo island. The island boasts 43 plant species that belong to various categories of endangered species, 88 protected plant species and seven endemic species. Although to a lesser extent, Biševo vegetation is also represented by the cultivated scenery, mostly covered in vineyards, which once dominated the island.
Considering that Biševo is known as a home to 16 species of nesting birds and that the island is an important stopover for migrating birds during their spring and autumn migrations, you can find out more about them in the Centre, as well as learn about two species of lizards and snakes that inhabit the island.
