What’s Right With Jamaica? The Cockpit Country

Jamaica’s Cockpit Country spans more than 5,000 acres covering parts of St James, Trelawny, St Ann, St Elizabeth and Manchester. It is the nation’s richest biodiversity site, housing 79 species of birds, 28 of which are endemic to Jamaica, the highest local diversity of amphibians and reptiles, and 13 of the island’s 21 bat species and more. Here are some photos of this rich natural gem.
