ECOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS

St. Mary's is an important site in terms of biological diversity, comprising cloud forests, mangroves and coral reefs.

The Reserve represents one of the most diverse natural communities on St. Kitts: the marine area and beaches near Canada, Keys and Cayon and the surrounding tropical forests of the mountain ridgeline.

It represents one of the first Biosphere Reserves of the small Caribbean island countries and could serve as an example of village participation in preserving the outstanding mosaic of natural and cultural landscape values.
