German Ambassador Visits the Trust
H.E. Lutz Goergens, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany visited the Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust for the first time.
Over the years the German Embassy has provided funds for Climate Change
projects to the Trust for programmes that were implemented successfully
in both Primary & Secondary schools as well as community groups in
Trinidad and Tobago. This recent visit gave Ambassador Goergens a
"hands-on" opportunity to experience one of our Nature Walks; to meet
some of the standard 5 students from Reform Presbyterian school engaged
in our specially designed programme. He also had an opportunity to
discuss some of the Trust's publications as well as the Environmental
Education & Public Awareness programmes that are implemented daily;
emphasizing linkages with ourselves as human beings, climate change
issues; biodiversity & ecosystem services.
