    A little culture :
    The Îlets de Sainte-Anne National Nature Reserve, created in 1995, was named in co-management with the Martinique Regional Nature Park (PNRM) and the National Forestry Office (ONF). The PNRM ensures its management, preservation and enhancement thanks to a management team (guardians of the environment, curator, etc.).

    Covering an area of ​​5.7 ha, it is made up of the Burgaux, Hardy, Percé and Poirier islets, constituting a major breeding site for pelagic seabirds from the Lesser Antilles as well as a migratory stopover for certain species of birds.
