Key Biodiversity Areas in the Caribbean Islands Hotspot
The Caribbean Islands Hotspot consists mainly of
three large groups of islands between North and
South America: the Bahamas, the Greater Antilles
(Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Cuba, and Hispaniola, which
includes the Dominican Republic and Haiti), and the
Lesser Antilles (an arc of islands in the eastern
Caribbean Sea and in the southern Caribbean Sea
just north of South America). While the hotspot spans
more than 4 million km² of ocean, it covers only about
230,000 km² of land area, with the four islands of
Cuba, Hispaniola, Jamaica and Puerto Rico making
up around 90 percent of the land area.

contain globally-threatened species that require sitescale conservation to prevent extinction in the shortto medium-term. The IUCN (International Union for
the Conservation of Nature) Red List of Threatened
Species documents 792 species that are listed as
Critically Endangered, Endangered, or Vulnerable in
the Caribbean Islands Hotspot.
Today, no more than 23,000 km², or 10% of the
original vegetation, remains in a pristine state in the
hotspot. By percentage, amphibians and mammals
are the most threatened of the taxonomic groups
assessed by the IUCN, at 77 percent and 39 percent
respectively. The Alliance for Zero Extinction, a joint
initiative of 67 biodiversity conservation organizations
dedicated to preventing the imminent extinction of the
world’s most threatened species, has identified the
last remaining sites for 69 threatened species in the
Caribbean Islands Hotspot. Among these sites is
Haiti’s Massif de la Hotte, a KBA that is the only home
for 15 globally-threatened species. Other sites in the
hotspot also contain large numbers of globallythreatened species, such as Cockpit Country and
Litchfield Mountain — Matheson's Run in Jamaica,
which have 58 and 44 globally-threatened species,
respectively.
A total of 284 KBAs were identified for threatened
mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, sea turtles, and
plants in the Caribbean. The number and boundaries
of KBAs in the region will undoubtedly grow as
improved information becomes available on these
and other taxonomic groups, such as freshwater fish
and invertebrates.KBA boundaries were delineated
based on information on the habitat requirements of
species, natural borders such as altitudinal levels or
ecotones, and management units such as existing
protected areas.
The Caribbean Islands Hotspot supports a wealth of
biodiversity within its terrestrial ecosystems, with a
high proportion of species found nowhere else on
Earth. It includes about 11,000 plant species, of which
72% are endemics. For vertebrates, remarkably high
proportions of endemic species characterize the
herpetofauna (100% of 189 amphibian species and
95% of 520 reptile species), likely due to their low
dispersal rates, in contrast to the more mobile birds
(26% of 564 species) and mammals (74% of 69
species). Species endemic to the hotspot represent
2.6% of the world’s 300,000 known plant species and
3.5% of the world’s 27,298 known vertebrate species.

This map depicts site-scale targets for biodiversity
conservation, known as Key Biodiversity Areas
(KBAs), for the Caribbean Islands Hotspot. These are
sites that are globally significant for biodiversity
conservation and are considered actually or
potentially manageable for conservation. KBAs
inset map extent
The main threats to the terrestrial biodiversity of the
insular Caribbean are habitat destruction and
fragmentation due to agriculture, urban tourism and
industrial/commercial development driven by
increasing population and affluence; overexploitation
of living resources; and predation and competition by
invasive alien species. Climate change is an
increasingly significant threat. Targeted conservation
is urgently needed to combat these threats.
Protecting the biodiversity of the region by
safeguarding KBAs may be achieved by declaring
new protected areas, strengthening management of
existing protected areas, working towards
community-based resource management,
implementing ecosystem service payments for
conservation, promoting ecotourism, and other
initiatives.

Biodiversity hotspots are regions that
harbor especially high numbers of
endemic species and, at the same
time, have been significantly impacted
by human activities. Each hotspot
faces extreme threats and has already
lost at least 70 percent of its original
natural vegetation. Over 50 percent
of the world’s plant species and 42
percent of all terrestrial vertebrate
species are endemic to the biodiversity
hotspots, making them urgent
priorities for biodiversity conservation
at a global scale.
