NatureSmart Cuba Eco Discovery Map - VanDam

Cuba’s place in history and its thriving wildlife found nowhere else are testament to its strategic location— where the Caribbean Sea, Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico converge. Strict environmental laws, low population and the absence of capitalist development—and materialism—helped preserve the fragile balance between people, the land and sea.

Scientists claim it’s like being in the Florida keys 150 years ago—abundant endemic flora and fauna, flourishing coral reefs patrolled by giant groupers and schools of sharks. An accidental Eden? Not exactly. Stringent government rules combined with an organic agriculture —due to a lack of fertilizers—have preserved Cuba as a living laboratory of endemic riches and agricultural sustainability. The limited number of cars and boats together with the absence of conspicuous consumption have conspired to conserve the environment. Cuba did something radically different and could become the model of how to do it right ecologically. An opportunity the rest of us have lost. Could it be that Cuba’s lasting revolution is green not red?

The map is perfect for those who wants to have an overview of Cuba, its main roads and its nature. It contains natural attractions like natural reserves and parks, diving sites, beaches, caves, and pictures of the animals species that are present on the island.
