Fun Wildlife on the Caribbean Islands
The Caribbean is home to both indigenous species as well as invasive species of animals who either came in from South America or were brought in by Europeans. Some of theses animals can’t be found anyplace else in the world and are quite unusual. We will periodically update you with introductions to some of the fun wildlife!

Green vervet monkeys arrived in St. Kitts with Africans that were brought as slaves to work the sugar cane fields. There’s a lot less cane cultivation in St. Kitts now.
