    Current Conservation Status: The island is subject to perdition by Great Horned Owls from the mainland. It is also subject to perdition by Great Black-backed Gulls, which take fledgling terns during July. The island has steadily eroded and has lost elevation over the past 30+ years, resulting in a loss of available nesting areas for terns. The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission has listed Alafia Bank as the most important colony in the state, due to its size (number of birds nesting), longevity of nesting activity, and species diversity. A acre "Alafia Extension" was added to the west end of Sunken Island in , using material from a nearby dredging project.
