Explore Jamaica's fauna - especially the birds!
Jamaica currently boast over 200 species of birds, twenty five of which are endemic to the island and another 21 sub species are found nowhere else!
A good place to start would be at the RockLands's Bird Sanctuary. Visitors are given the opportunity to feed the birds with their hands! You may also read more on Jamaica's Plants & Animals HERE.

We have many christian religions in Jamaica, almost all the conventional ones, as well as protestants.
You can also find other non-tranditional Jamaican religions here, including Islam, Hinduism and African religions.
