Isla Taborcillo (a.k.a. John Wayne Island) is a small private island 40 kilometres (25 miles) off the coast of Panama, which was once owned by American film actor John Wayne. Currently owned by Austrian businessman Ralph Hübner, founder of publishing company Who is Who, the island contains a resort hotel and theme park, and is a vacation destination for European and American tourists. A part of the island has been designated as a protected bird sanctuary; egrets, brown pelicans and hummingbirds nest here.
