ABOUT ST. LUCIA
St Lucia lies in the southern Lesser Antillean arc, at 13.85 degrees north and 61 degrees west.  The nearest island is Martinique, 30 kilometers north across the usually choppy St Lucia Channel.  St Vincent lies 40 kilometers to the south and Barbados 160 kilometers south-east.  The nearest mainland is South America.  St. Lucia is just 42 kilometers long by 22 kilometers wide with a shoreline of 155.7 kilometers.  The average temperature is 27 degrees Celsius (78 Fahrenheit), with 75 per cent humidity.  During the wet season (from June till November), tropical storms and hurricanes sometimes hit the island… The east coast is washed by the Atlantic Ocean and the west by the Caribbean Sea.  St Lucia receives steady northeasterly trade winds almost year round. Because of its topography, this 616.4 square kilometer (238 square miles) dot of land is surprisingly varied in micro-climates, flora and fauna.  About one-third of the island is considered tropical dry forest, which includes most of the coastline and river valleys.  Another one-third consists of subtropical wet forest, which originally was covered in primary forest.  Both of these zones have in recent centuries been converted into agricultural lands.  Most of the remaining one-third is (sub)-tropical wet or moist forest, which consists of lush vegetation on steep gradients. Home to the cloud-covered tops of Mount Gimie  (tallest mountain rising to 950 meters above sea level), Morne La Sorciere and Gros Piton, where the average temperature is just 19 degrees, rain falls almost constantly and trees are covered with parasitic and epiphytic plants.  These are the rare elfin woodlands of St. Lucia. …dramatic landscapes with unexpected streaks of sunlight, green shadows, giant ferns, ledges, perched boulders, dark canyons, hanging valleys, waterfalls and ever-changing skylines. Excerpts from “A History of St. Lucia” by J Harmen, G Ellis and R Devaux.
HISTORY OF ST. LUCIA
The earliest settlement by Amerindians of South America date between 400 BC and AD 600-800 as defined through historical and archaeological sources.  …the first-ever recorded encounter between Europeans and Amerindians in the Lesser Antilles took place in St Lucia and, as luck would have it, this is one of the most elaborate narratives of such a meeting to survive.  In 1605, the ship Oliphe Blossome set out from England for British-Guiana in South America.  It drifted off course, a mutiny broke out and 67 of those on board were left behind on an island of which they knew nothing except the name given to it by European discoverers a century earlier: Santo Lucia.  The Englishmen spent six weeks in St Lucia, living close to the Amerindians, who knew their island is Iouanalao (Hewanorra or ‘there where iguanas are found’). One of the surviving Englishmen afterwards wrote:  ‘These Carrebyes…did seem most strange and ugly, by reason they are all naked, with long black hair hanging down their shoulders, their bodies all painted with red, and from their ears to their eyes, they do make three strokes with red, which makes them look like devils or Anticke faces. Excerpts from “A History of St. Lucia” by J Harmen, G Ellis and R Devaux. Look out for more excerpts on St Lucia History, Culture and Modernization.
A Sampling of Our Nature South East Coast Tours
The Maria Islands:  These islands are located along the southern tip of St Lucia about ½ a mile from the Atlantic coast of Pointe Sable in Vieux Fort.  In 1982 these islands were designated a Nature Reserve by the government of St. Lucia in recognition of its valuable wildlife habitat among which includes over 80 plants species and five endemic reptile species.  A spectacular sight to behold during the West African bird migratory nesting season May to August.
Vieux Fort: The Island’s second largest town all flanked to the north by the towering ranges of the central forest reserves and where the southern tip of the island terminates into the Atlantic Ocean where the land also merges with the Caribbean Sea.  This relatively flat undulating landscape with an abundance of freshwater and soil rich from volcanic activity was well suited for agriculture by the early Amerindian (where an abundance of settlements were unearthed by archaeologists) and later by the Europeans conquerors who carved the lands into large productive plantations of bananas, coconuts, cocoa and sugar cane all introduced (non- native) to the island.  Today these areas have been replaced by smaller farms and fishing village coastlines.
Scorpion Island and Savannes Bay bird and biodiversity protected areas:  One of the better defined coastal mangrove forest found in St Lucia was designated as a Marine reserve in 1986 by the government of St Lucia.  This low lying tropical dry forest is home to an abundance of bird species including one endemic species (the St Lucian Black Finch – melanospiza richardsoni) and many migrants including egrets, herons, kingfishers, warblers, ducks and waders.  Combined with the Pointe Sable nature reserve, this area is approx. 774 hectares in size along the south to southeast coast of St Lucia is dominated by three mangrove types and is very important for migrants and water birds as the largest wetlands in St Lucia.  The marine life is just as important with juvenile fish species finding a home among the mangrove and sea-grass flats.
Fishing Village of Micoud and the Praslin and Frigate Islets: Named in honor of the French Governor de Micoud who ruled St Lucia from 1768 to 1771.  The suitability of the harbor for fishing and the ready availability of the freshwater from the Troumasse River are the principal factors cited by archaeologists as evidence of intense Amerindian presence in this area.  Boarding Micoud to the north is the coastal fishing village of Praslin, home to Praslin and Frigate Islands, where many bird species reside including the magnificent frigate, herons, yellow-eyed, brown-feathered tremblers and the St Lucia orioles most of which are mainly found on the Frigate Islands Nature Reserve.
