 The Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust teaches Wetland Conservation...

In April 2017 teachers from all over Trinidad attended a Teachers Workshop at the Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust. The topic, "Wetland Conservation" inspiring teachers to think outside the box when it comes to teaching the concept of values and importance of wetlands. This project was made possible through funding from the New Zealand High Commission. The teachers were exposed to our wetland area while investigating how aquatic plants help support ecosystem services. The programme was hands-on and educational as to allow the teachers to grasp new ideas of teaching wetland conservation to their students. Read More...

Scarlet Ibis: National Bird of Trinidad:                                                                                                              Another live hatch at the PaP Wildfowl Trust.

Over the years Scarlet Ibis are bred and released in one of the aviculture programmes at the PaP Wildfowl Trust.  

                       Recently we have read the appalling news of the illegal hunting & slaughter of our National Bird and a migratory flock of Flamingoes in the Caroni Swamp. Trinidad & Tobago have laws that protect our National Bird and prohibit hunting them and other wildlife during the closed season. In the 1960’s our National Bird stopped breeding in our Country because of this very same reason.                                                                                                                                                                                     It is deeply regrettable that we do not have enough Game Wardens to patrol & monitor our wetlands & forests so making the Forestry Division & the Ministry of Agriculture, Land & Fisheries incapable of bringing these monsters to book. At the PaPWFT we continue to breed & release our locally endangered waterfowl.

Combating Climate Change Through Art           The Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust in partnership with the German Embassy in Trinidad and Tobago recently concluded an Art Competition for Primary and Secondary Schools which were visited by Trust Educators. The theme for the Competition "Living With Climate Change, Today and Tomorrow" aims to depict the Earth as we know it versus what it may become. Students from all levels participated and submitted very creative and interpretive pieces. See More... Congratulations to all our prize winners!!! See Here...

The Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust is proud to be supported by the German Embassy in Trinidad and Tobago again with a grant which would enable the Trust's outreach programme "Adapting to Climate Change". Trust Educators will visit schools specifically in rural areas of Trinidad and Tobago to share educational programmes to the youth engaging them in discussions and showing them that a "green lifestyle" helps fight climate change. 

The Embassy and the Trust have been long standing partners since 2011 in raising the awareness about climate change.
