The population of parrots, jutias, and majaes (Cuban snake-shaped reptile) has considerably increased in this area, one of the 30 protected sites in that province, also likely for illegal hunting and felling of trees.

The Limones-Tuabaquey area treasures archaeological values; for example, four out of its seven caves where aboriginal pictography can be found are very likely to become UNESCO's world heritage sites.
