Little Bay Pond is an eight-hectare site located in the south of Sint Maarten. Fringed with mangroves planted by the Nature Foundation of St. Maarten, Little Bay Pond is home to a variety of ducks and wading birds, including the Caribbean Coot, a species of concern.
The non-profit Environmental Protection in the Caribbean (EPIC) and the Nature Foundation partnered with Adventure of the Seas cruise ship to build a wildlife watching hut on the shore of this publicly owned property.
A development at Little Bay resulted in a road scar bordering the pond. The development was halted due to lack of funding, leaving a tragic legacy.
