Royal Palm Reserve

The Royal Palm Reserve is a protected area within the Negril Environmental Protection Area. This Reserve is owned by the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica and is managed by the Negril Environmental Protection Trust. The Negril Morass is the second largest swamp forest in Jamaica - over 6000 acres of forest. The reserve itself is 300 acres within this forest. There are 114 endemic plant species in the reserve, and some have medicinal purposes. One of the main reasons for preservation of this area is for the conservation of the Morass (Swamp) Royal Palm, which can be seen in this panorama.
