Environmental Conservation Center Opens in St. Lucia

St. Lucia recently unveiled a new visitor attraction, Our Planet Centre, designed to engage visitors on environmental conservation in a fun, interactive way through the use of new wave technology.

The multi-million dollar Our Planet Centre will donate all proceeds to local environmental projects on island. Our Planet features the largest mirror-sphere in the world, producing a giant kaleidoscopic display for video screening; a hologram recorded specifically for St. Lucia by Prince Charles; multiple touch screen displays; a simulation hurricane room; as well as a “NASA Room” designed specifically by the NASA team to stream weather information.

Visitors will have the experience of learning more about the island of Saint Lucia with an interactive floor about endangered species of St. Lucia and even the wonder of viewing the never-before-seen Castries harbor through a snowstorm with the use of snow machines.

The attraction is funded primarily by the German Government with support from other corporations including Marks & Spencer, Hilton Group of Hotels, and the Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA). Our Planet Centre is located at La Place Carenage in the Castries harbor.
