A non-profit, environmentally friendly wildlife reserve located at the Pointe-a-Pierre oil refinery in the South.

It is a haven for various wildfowls and other birds set on a secluded area of land, surrounded by lakes and lush vegetation.

Visitors are accompanied by a guide to walk the trails, which can be completed in one hour. I saw peacocks, the Scarlet Ibis [ the national bird of Trinidad], the Cocrico,[ the national bird of Tobago] and an array of wildfowls and various versions of the Heleconia plant families.

The guide was quite knowledgeable and was always willing to answer any questions I had.

The rate is TT 8.00 per person.
Reservations are required.
There is a natural history museum and other displays on site.

TIP: for the adventourous ask the guide to see the "rainbow boa", a harmless snake resident at this location.. I had the opportunity to hold one.

Address: Pointe-a-Pierre
