Children's Crossing on
Saint Helena

St. Helena Olive
now extinct.

  The old-fashioned Be Aware warning signs are rapidly disappearing. They are neglected and weathering away and replaced by the standardized UK-design.

Saints seem so anxiously eager to be with the pack that they forget what makes the island unique: endemics. They even do achieve to choose an exotic species as their national flower ! Meanwhile the local diversity is rapidly diminishing. Plants and road signs alike, all falling silently over board.
