Dominica, officially known as the Commonwealth of Dominica, is an island and a republic located in the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea. The network of Dominica National Parks covers a significant percentage of the country, with various protected areas including national parks and reserves to safeguard the biodiversity of its fauna, flora, and geology.
The Unit of National Parks holds the most prominent position.

These sites are also under the supervision and jurisdiction of the Division. Furthermore, the Unit has the responsibility of implementing the "Usage Fee" program at twelve (12) ecotourism sites across the island.
