  • The St. Lucia Wildlife Scene
  • The nation of St. Lucia is dedicated and highly involved with ongoing conservation and preservation of its natural resources and breathtaking environment. The mountainous island interior is home to an enormous healthy rainforest alive with myriad species of tropical wildlife. Numerous tours, nature hikes, and educational programs have been developed to highlight the natural beauty of St. Lucia.
  • St. Lucia's National Rain Forest is a paradise for bird watchers. The colorful St. Lucia Parrot (also known as the Jacquot), St. Lucia Peewee, and the White Breasted Thrasher make the forested hills their nesting grounds. Brilliant and unusual Bird of Paradise plants, mango trees, plantains, and giant ferns are examples of the rich St. Lucia plant life. The rainforest paths are dotted with exotic wild orchids of many varieties and the trees play host to bromeliads, also known as air plants, high in their branches.
  • The dense island foliage is a perfect refuge for St. Lucia's many reptile species. Island guests will commonly see the three local species of geckos clinging to screen doors or scurrying across the villa pathways. The island is also home to several other tree and ground lizards including several varieties of anolis and the iguana which can grow up to six feet in length. St. Lucia's waters have at least three species of sea turtles and the island features a ground tortoise also.
  • The boa constrictor is the largest of St. Lucia's snakes and keeps to the island's bushes and trees. The only dangerous snake in the area is the notorious Fer de Lance which is poisonous and causes injury and deaths throughout Central America and the Caribbean. The local species is known as the St. Lucia Viper and is simple called "the Serpent" by the local people.
