I enjoy introducing visitors to the flora and fauna of Andros, including the variety of birds in their diverse environments.
Large bird-like creatures with mystical powers (Chickcharnees) live in the pine forests. Also, the Lusca, a sea monster, can suck you down into their underwater lairs (blue holes) if you're not careful.
The Andros Park System is the country’s largest protected area, and includes five national parks: Blue Holes National Park, Crab Replenishment Reserve, North & South Marine Parks and the West Side National Park.
Andros has the highest concentration of blue holes in the world. They house many unusual and unique cave fish and invertebrates, some not found anywhere else in the world.
The reef is 190 miles long, drops to about eight feet on the island side and plunges to more than 6,000 feet in the Tongue of the Ocean. It is unique in the region because of its size, luxuriant coral growth, and low incidence of coral disease.
