Environment
The British West Indies have a tropical maritime climate. The forests were depleted hundreds of years ago by sugarcane plantation owners making room to create more farmable land. Some islands have mountainous terrain while others are lower in elevation, so plant life varies based on the terrain.1 Turks and Caicos Islands are a group of islands near the Bahamas. The Turks and Caicos groups are separated from each other by a 22-mile long, 7,000 feet deep marine trench called “the Wall”. Both sections are low-lying islands formed by reefs. Among the driest islands in the Caribbean, Turks and Caicos are home to many desert-like plants.2
