Owner description: The Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust was founded in 1966. We are a national, not-for-profit environmental organization dedicated to Environmental Education, Public Awareness and the research, breeding and re-introduction into the wild of locally endangered waterfowl species and other wetland birds. As an inland, freshwater habitat encompassing approximately 32 hectares and 2 lakes, we are uniquely situated within a major petro-chemical and oil-refining complex, making it the only one in the world.

This is a must see before going to see the scarlet ibis roost at the Caroni Swamp, as you get to see these beautiful birds really close, together with a host of other wetland birds, including striated heron, red-capped cardinal, black bellied whistling duck, purple gallinule, wattled jacana. Magnificent view of an osprey fishing in a lake in the golf course next to the Wildfowl trust! Well worth an hour or two's visit for the serious birder.

It is amazing to visit a wetlands eco attraction just minutes away from an oil refinery but it works. The site is well-set out and the tour is very educational and enjoyable. A profoundly relaxing and informative experience and a reminder of our need to connect with the beauty of the earth. Skip the mall and go to the wildfowl trust with an open mind and heart!
