Went here through my job to carry some underprivileged children to explore nature, the tour guides were very knowledgeable...but the mosquitoes were HUGE, I am typing this and my pores are raising, make sure to walk with your citronella. The place generally need some upkeep though to make it more awesome

Really really love this place. Variety of birds, floral and fauna. Lovely nature trail, every visitor should experience this place. It is very scenic and have many birds much to the bird watchers delight. It is located on the compound of the Petrotrin refinery, as a result for security reasons you must call to make a booking. If you do... More

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... More

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... More

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 :)

I think in half an hour here I saw more osprey than there are in the whole of the UK. A strange place with all the flares etc going on in the middle of a bird reserve or is the reserve in the middle of the refinery - hard to tell.

My boyfriend and I took the guided tour for the wildfowl trust in January of this year and the guide told us about the extra hike along Devil's Ear trail. We had the chance to go on it last week and it was very nice. There are a lot of beautiful trees and bamboo that tower over you. We didn't... More

Very nice sanctuary. The tour was really affordable and very enjoyable. Lots of information and its doing some interesting stuff. It only takes a couple of hours to see. Make sure you call and make a reservation, I recommend the morning tour. The lily pads will be flowering. They close up in the afternoons.
