Also known as the “Great Forest of the Lion King”, this dense forest is never been affected by human activity, nor, for million years by any natural disasters. ‘Scientists believe that it represents a botanical and zoological environment whose evolution has been undisturbed for at least hundred million years’. This rainforest’s importance is greatly due to the fact that a major portion of the forest is comprised of endemics; plants, birds, mammals and butterflies, thus exclusive to this island. This distinctive gene pool of flora and fauna is only to be found here, in this primeval rain forest, hence this was declared as an UNESCO site in 1988.
