Mon 05 Sep, 2016

While the General Assembly and the Board of Directors were held at the headquarters in Camargue (South of France), Club Caribaea Haiti, led by Jean-Marry Exantus – Local correspondent in Haiti, organized a tour of Park Martissant.

The Park Martissant is a public botanical park, but also a cultural, educational and recreational space. The park is formed by a set of four old private properties (Leclerc, Dunham, Mangones, Pauline) and became public through the 2007 presidential decree that created the Park Martissant. The park is about 17 hectares.

The Club Caribaea Haiti has offered young students to enhance their knowledge in the identification of animal species in the Park. Twenty young volunteers have covered an area of 15 hectares in search of local “residents”… Several bird species were observed during the visit, such as Cornelius Hispaniola, Pic of Hispaniola, Dove Sad Slave Palmiste, Hummingbird Nain, Amazon Hispaniola, Dove Tail Black. They were able to watch amphibians and reptiles and discover great medicinal plants within the knowledge of Yves Monval.
