Jamaica

SHARE

Jamaica’s breathtaking beauty and appeal is underpinned by a rich eco-system of nestling mountain ranges, terrestrial national parks, forest and game reserves, rivers, marine parks, fish sanctuaries as well as unique heritage sites and landmarks, where flora and fauna find habitat in delicate balance with human activities.

The Caribbean Biodiversity Fund supports marine management, promotes sustainable fishing and protects freshwater sources for communities to ensure that Jamaica’s diverse natural treasures will continue to bring joy to the future generations.
