Island Nature

Read about our island’s natural environment

There is perhaps no other spot in the whole world which geographically presents so great an interest to the naturalist as St. Helena.
St Helena: A Physical, Historical and Topographical Description of the Island, including the Geology, Fauna, Flora and Meteorology, by John Melliss, published in 1875

As if being a beautiful sub-tropical island paradise is not enough, St Helena’s natural environment has many interesting aspects.


Some of them are mentioned here. If there is something about St Helena’s natural environment that we have not covered please contact us and we’ll try to add it in.
