The Caribbean's Emerald Isle: Despite its small size, Montserrat supports at least 132 tree species, 59 species of birds and 13 mammals. The Montserrat oriole is found nowhere else. Also restricted to Montserrat are the galliwasp and anole. The endangered 'mountain chicken' (a frog) is found only on Montserrat and Dominica. Several other species are restricted to Montserrat and some nearby islands.
St Helena's isolated position in the South Atlantic has given rise to an unusual and remarkable land and marine flora and fauna. The Island is home to 45 plants that occur nowhere else and is a global hotspot for invertebrate diversity with around 460 endemic species. The marine environment supports a diverse array of marine life, including many endemics, and several charismatic migratory species including humpback whales, whale sharks and turtles.
Alderney is the northernmost of the Channel Islands. The Alderney Wildlife Trust helps to maintain two nature reserves and the island's Wetland of International Importance under the Ramsar Convention officially known as 'Alderney West Coast and Burhou Islands', which was designated in 2005.
