Approximately 3000 Caribbean descendants still inhabit the island today.

Great Britain establishes control in 1763, and in 1805 Dominica becomes a colony.

Independence is achieved in 1978.

The island is covered with thick green jungle, occasionally interrupted by sharp volcanic peaks, lakes, rivers, hot springs and waterfalls. There is a rich variety of vegetation and animals.
