Guadeloupe

GLP

Guadeloupe houses remarkable biodiversity. It is situated in the Caribbean, one of 34 biodiversity hotspots in the world, and a total of 13.6% of the island is classified as protected area. The Parc National de la Guadeloupe is representative of many natural environments in the Caribbean, with diverse terrestrial and marine environments. Terrestrial environments include rainforests, high-altitude thickets, dry forests, deep-sea karstic environments, wetlands, rivers and coastal formations. Marine environments include coral reefs and mangroves.

Created in 1989, the park was first composed of a core zone, which is a protected zone where maximum protection of the natural heritage is implemented, with strict supervision of human activities. Alongside the central zone is a peripheral zone composed of 3 communes (Pointe-Noire, Bouillante and Vieux-Habitants), where voluntary communes engage in a policy of sustainable development, in support of the protection of the heart of the national park. The park is jointly governed under IUCN management category II, and was Green Listed in 2014.
