Viya – The vibe that connects us!

By land or by sky, the island of St. Croix is home to a variety of creatures. The rainforest and bush are home to unique animals like the mongoose, iguanas, and even hermit crabs. The island’s agricultural scene breeds domesticated animals such as horses, goats, sheep, and Senepol cattle as well as the often seen chickens. Many visitors are surprised to find that deer have even found a home here on St. Croix.  Birdwatchers are thrilled to find that the skies, land and coastline are home to a multitude of birds including pelicans, egrets, kestrels, hummingbirds, and our beautiful state bird, the bananaquit. As you enjoy your time on St. Croix, make sure you take in the diverse wildlife the island has to offer…it is everywhere.
