Geography Now! Dominica

Even though it's in the Caribbean, don't confuse Dominica with its neighbor, the Dominican Republic. Dominica is home to the most centenarians in the world, probably thanks to its natural lifestyle and easy-going culture. Also home to some of the only remaining indigenous Carib peoples, the nation has worked hard to preserve its lush rain forests. An interesting video resource introduces learners to the lesser-known island nation as it looks at its people and breathtaking physical features.
