A nice trail for nature photographers and birders, where you can see a large variety of Trinidad birds and also caimans and insects. A few animals in cages, some for rehabilitative purposes but most can come and go as they like. A very nice experience to have while in South Trinidad

As people kept telling us on T&T, Trinidadians view all wildlife as a potential meal. By visiting schools and bringing students to the Pointe-a-Pierre wetlands, the Wildfowl Trust is trying to change that attitude. And they have a great story to tell.

Years ago, the then owner of the refinery, Texaco, turned the wetlands on its property into the Wildfowl Trust. Since, it's become an important conservation center, breeding the islands' endangered birds like the white-faced whistling duck for release into the wild. There's also blue and gold macaws.

You'll find many wild birds as well. Among them are masked cardinal, osprey, yellow-headed caracara, yellow-headed blackbird, wattled jacana, black-crowned night-heron, streak-headed woodcreeper, purple and common gallinules, black-bellied whistling-duck, and many, many more.

We were lucky enough to meet two of Trinidad's heroes, Molly Gaskin and Karilyn Shephard, who have spent many years making the Trust a success, both for the birds and for education.

If you want to stay nearby, there's a very comfortable guest house just a short walk away called Petrea Place.

There's a picnic area near the welcome center, but there's little in the way of food to purchase. So bring your own.

Great place to visit if you are a nature lover, lots of wild birds and caymans. Lots of great scenes for a nature photographer like me and there are nice trails for walking. Not bad for a place inside an oil refinery

You have to go through an oil refinery to get there but when you do it is an amazing experience. We thought it would be like the Wildfowl Trust in the UK with captured birds as well as wild ones but most of the birds are wild and come and go as they please. Ther are a few blue and yellow macaws in cages and some scarlet ibis but that is it. Everthing else is just there becuase it wants to be. A great experience and we would go again.

I visited this place years ago and it was and still is a must see place to visit in Trinidad. However there is a lady who works there by the tone of her voice she sounds foreign. She has a attitude problem didn't get her name but she needs to adjust her attitude...but otherwise the place is lovely :)
