A remarkable garden in a global biodiversity hotspot
Labeled 'remarkable garden' in 2015, the and park of Habitation Céron in Le Prêcheur in Martinique extends over 16,404 square feet (5,000 m²). It occupies the northern and western slopes of Mount Pelée recognized as the 4th global biodiversity hotspot for their tropical forest. To be qualified as a 'hotspot', a site must meet two criteria : 1,500 endemic species - i.e. more than 5 % of the species present on Earth - must have been identified there and 70 % of its original habitat must have disappeared.
