Trust Activities....

Students were exposed to an outdoor "hands- on" experience at the PaP Wild Fowl Trust. They learned the importance of wetlands and the linkages to man. A greater appreciation for natural wetland areas was instilled in the minds of our future leaders. A great day was had by all from visiting school, Montrose Government Primary School.

 

Extending the programme to pre-school and secondary schools The Pointe-a-Pierre Wild Fowl Trust will continue to inspire in the young people of the country that wetland conservation and protection of all that inhabit it must be done!

The Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust works German Embassy in Combating Climate Change in Trinidad and Tobago

  

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.
