Cayes Botanical Garden, Haiti (CBG)



     CBG was founded on September 3, 2003 on 8 hectares. It is located between the two largest biosphere reserves in Haiti: Macaya National Park and La Visite National Park. It is the first and only botanical garden in Haiti, and received awards in 2007 and 2010 as an environmental model for Haiti. CBG is a member of BGCI (Botanical Gardens conservation International) and Fairchild Challenge Satellite Partner. The establishment of this garden is rooted to the biodiversity loss and lack of long-term structures and education to conserve biodiversity in Haiti. However The Haitian Constitution 1987 stated in it article 256 “Within the framework of protecting the environment and public education, the State has the obligation to proceed to establish and maintain botanical and zoological gardens at certain points in its territory”. Unfortunately, after 24 years, no Botanic Garden has yet established. In consequence Cayes Botanical Garden has been involved in helping the state to conserve Haitian biodiversity and develop environmental program to educate the population.
