It was set up in 2008 with the objective of protecting the local ecosystems of dense dry forest which have an exceptionally rich biodiversity and a very high rate of native species. In 2009 the Research Institute for Social Development estimated around 500 plant species in the park. 70% of these species are endemic. The park is also home to many native birds including the Cagou, Noutou, Caledonian warbler and green pigeon.
It is open every day except Tuesdays.
