Cuba: Gardens of the Queen
A beautiful story of how a protected reef became one of the world’s last healthy ecosystems.
Cuba’s Gardens of the Queen, (Jardines De La Reina), is called the crown jewel of the Caribbean. One of the few places in the world where you can see what a marine ecosystem was like thousands of years ago. It is one of the healthiest and most vibrant marine ecosystems in the world and a wonderful example of how governments around the world can help our planet start restoring damaged ecosystems. Strictly protected since 1996, the Gardens show us what’s possible when we commit to creating healthy and abundant oceans.
