Cuba’s Wild Revolution

9Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean and one fifth of its territory is protected habitat for spectacular wildlife. From the bee hummingbird to Cuba’s very own fast-moving, deadly but threatened crocodile species, to the city geckos that migrated from Africa, lazy giant iguanas that go crazy in the mating season. Thanks to the Cuban Revolution this is still a wildlife paradise, but the time is coming when Cuba will have to change. Will there always be a place for nature?
