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.

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.

For our family we always enjoy a visit to the Trust. I'm no expert of fluara and fauna but there is variety here that you wont easily access elsewhere on the island. Recommended to nature lovers or anyone wishing to see some of our wildlife.

Wildlife Trust Trinidad, a peaceful and quite place next to Petrotrin refinery. There is a small charge to enter. Great walks around the first lake, less interesting walk around the outside. A boardwalk around part of the lake provides a good viewing platform for the wildlife.

Went there with my post SEA class.The tour guide was very creative in presenting the information to the students .My one problem was I found that she gave too much info making the tour too long.
