WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY!!!

Every year The Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust celebrates World Environment Day with visitors. This year the Trust helped spread the word about the need for preservation and continued conservation of the Natural Environment. The biggest of all issues, Climate Change! Education Officers visited schools invoking the need for lifestyle changes in order to combat Climate Change. Students from Rousec Private School visited the Trust and were challenged to create posters illustrating the environment. The P-a-P Wildfowl Trust is dedicated to making a difference and promoting Wise- use of all natural resources so that future generations may be protected.

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.
