Aerial view of Gra Gra Lagoon National Park
Gra Gra Lagoon National Park, established in 2002, is located near the coast just below the town of Dangriga, the capital of the Stann Creek District. The park was established in 2002 and covers approximately 1,197 acres. The very shallow brackish lagoon of 300 acres is the centerpiece of the park but the protected area also includes the greater part of the surrounding mangrove system, excepting that on the seaward shore. The mangrove grades into swamp forest and lowland forest on the inland side. There are patches of tall herbaceous swamp behind the beach-crest close and entering the park boundary and large areas of freshwater reed swamps within the forested swamplands.
