I visited Source Zabeth which is one of the important echo system of Haiti. The source is located in the village of Bonnette, near Ganthier. The echo park that was refurbished thanks to a contribution of the European Union extends over three hectares. Nearly 300 plants and species are listed in this location. Besides flora, this site also has a unique fauna. Several varieties of fish derived. A trans-border program on environmental protection between Haiti and the Dominican Republic, funded by the European Union (EU), is under way on this site. The goal of this program is to turn this site into a more attractive echo tourist destination.

Culturally, this site has great importance for the adept of the Voodoo religion. They contribute significantly to the protection of trees in this region. Leaders of the Protestant churches have also used this source to baptize their members. Source Zabeth represents a pole of attraction for all. People from various backgrounds cannot wait to discover its potential and its values.
