Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust
H.E. John L. Estrada, US Ambassador to Trinidad & Tobago and his wife Dr. Elizabeth Cote Estrada together with their twin daughters, Eva and Marie and Ms. Monica Cote, visit the PaPWildfowl Trust.
The family thoroughly enjoyed their Nature Walk around the Trust’s main breeding lake. H.E. was interested in the work of the Trust and offered his support.
The Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust is celebrating its 50th Anniversary and is marking this significant achievement with a series of events scheduled to begin in December 2015, progressing to November 2016.

50 YEARS OF FIRSTS...
Again in 1983, another FIRST! The PAPWFT designed the first Sea Turtle Recovery Plan for Trinidad & Tobago; not only patrolling the beaches on foot & tagging, yearly from 1979, but also with the help of both the National Security Helicopter and a commercial helicopter service, we were able to carryout the first aerial surveys of nesting turtles on the East & Northwestern coast for this Recovery Plan. In 1985 the Trust initiated Turtle Patrols @ Matura beach as part of our outreach environmental education programme for Secondary school students.
