Jamaica


About Us

Jamaica is an island of verdant hills, majestic mountains, crystalline rivers, and white beaches edging a turquoise sea. Here, nature intertwines effortlessly with bustling towns and sleepy villages – home to the almost 3 million people who call Jamaica home. From the Blue Mountains made famous by the coffee that bears its name to Pedro Bank, one of the world’s largest suppliers of queen conch, the country’s natural heritage is its most valuable resource.

For generations, Jamaica’s natural world sustained the island’s farming and fishing communities. Today, farmers and fishers struggle to make a living while tourism thrives, providing nearly one-fourth of the nation’s jobs. Visitors come to Jamaica to enjoy its natural beauty, but that attraction is under threat. For this reason, The Nature Conservancy and its local partners are dedicated to protecting the country’s natural places, to sustaining communities, and to preserving biodiversity.
