The Saint Lucian Parrot, Amazon Versicolor, is the national bird of Saint Lucia.

Saint Lucia is one of the Windward Islands which had a very strong French presence and as a consequence a French based Creole is a widely used method of communication which co-exists with the accepted mother tongue of English. Saint Lucia has become famous for its two volcanic peaks, The Pitons, which rise out of the sea for nearly half a mile near the town of Soufriere. Saint Lucia is the only Caribbean island to have two Nobel Laureates, the late Sir Arthur Lewis for economics and Mr Derek Walcott for literature. Also significant is the world's only drive-in volcano, with an area of bubbling, hot sulphur springs.
