The Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust

The Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust, established in 1966, is an independent, national, not-for-profit,

environmental, non-government, volunteer, membership organization, encompassing two lakes and about 75

acres of land within a major petrochemical and oil refining complex, PETROTRIN. LINKAGES are pivotal in

the management of our area and programmes, offering a model of wise-use. The P-a-P Wildfowl Trust, a

wetland habitat, is a peaceful haven where members (approx. 2000) and visitors may enjoy a guided

educational Nature Walk, relax, enjoy birding, photography and interpretive trails.

The motto of the Trust

“To Know Is To Love, To Love Is To Preserve.”

The LEARNING CENTRE houses information

dealing with living organisms and their habitats, a

unique mollusk collection donated by Peter

Perchade, Malacologist, in recognition of our

Environmental Education Programmes, and a small,

but comprehensive Amerindian museum from the

late Peter O’B Harris, Archaeologist.

At the Trust we are actively involved in the research, breeding and translocation of endangered wetland birds

into existing natural wildlife habitats in Trinidad and Tobago. The Aviculture Programme includes the

following species:

Wild Muscovy Duck (Cairina

moschata)

Released 8758 (1985-2017)

White- cheeked Pintails (Anas

bahamensis)

Released 145 (1982- 2017)

Black- bellied Whistling Tree Ducks

(Dendrocygna autumnalis)

Released 1611 (1967- 2017)

Fulvous Whistling Ducks

(Dendrocygna bicolor)

Released 713 (1985- 2017)

White-faced Whistling Ducks

(Dendrocygna viduata)

Released 88 (1988- 2017)


(Eudocimus ruber)

Bred 105; Released (1991- 2017)


Education

In 1979, the Trust initiated environmental education programmes with audio-visuals; the first to be taken into

primary, secondary, comprehensive schools and community groups, throughout Trinidad, and later on, in Tobago.

Fieldwork at the Trust includes aquatic sampling, pond, leaf and feather labs, quadrat and transect sampling. In

our daily environmental education programmes, we teach about LINKAGES, we discuss all aspects of the natural

environment and their interactions with and links to human health and well- being, social and economic impacts,

problems and solutions. We teach about wetland ecosystems, from forests to coral reefs and their links to people.

In this way, we have a holistic approach to teaching.

The Trust bases its Policies and Actions on Sustainability and WISE

USE.

We Believe that the human society and its economic well-being

cannot be separated from the Natural Environment, and that

economic benefits must be BALANCED with eco-system conservation

and all aspects of human health – physical, mental and spiritual.

Lily leaf

The Trust also Believes that only through the education of our

People, especially the children, will there be any real hope for the

Future. We believe that greater awareness and understanding of

the importance of preserving the environment and all our Natural

resources, together with the protection and managed breeding of

our Wildlife: the propagation of our trees and plants, will assist in

bringing greater stability, true growth and a healthier economy.

This awareness will build more responsible and productive people.

The Trust believes that true

progress will only come true when

more people become involved, and

play an ACTIVE part, no matter

how small, in doing something

positive for greater improvements in

our country, and by extension, the

world.

PETREA PLACE AND THE NEW FREEBIRD

RESTAURANT

In 2004, another dream of the Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust was realized. The Grand Opening

of Petrea Place by His Excellency The President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago

Professor Maxwell Richards. Petrea Place was named after the many Petrea Trees growing in the

area and linked to the Trust by a Nature Walk. Petrea Place is a unique facility that caters to

business executives, policy makers, scientists and researchers both locally and abroad or simply

for those wishing to spend some quiet time.

In 2017, Petrea Place changed operators, Rhenard and Rhe-Anne Callender a brother, sister duo.

Together they manage the Trust’s very first ‘Farm to Table’ Restaurant, Freebird. The new

Restaurant offers superb menus in a quiet and harmonious area of the Trust conducive to

complete relaxation and providing facilities for special occasions, birthdays, weddings, retreats,

corporate workshops and seminars.

To enjoy a fine meal at the Freebird Restaurant reservations must be made at 658-5322.

World Environment Day 2018

Beat Plastic Pollution

The PaP Wildfowl Trust celebrated World

Environment Day 2018 with some of our

environmental education programmes. Our

focus for this is project, ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’.

We discussed the dangers of plastic pollution to and in our environment with the students, teachers from

Carapichaima West Secondary and Siparia East Secondary. Some of our visitors from Canada joined the

programme too! We all talked about the many ways of reducing plastic pollution after watching the film

“Plastic Ocean” and concluded that each of us can do something to mitigate this horrendous problem.

(Full Video of activities can be viewed on the Trust’s You Tube channel.)

Students’ Workshop 2018

Pollution: The Mindful and the Mindset

A Sustainable Development Project

The New Zealand High Commission in

collaboration with The Pointe-a-Pierre

Wildfowl Trust hosted a three part

student workshop for Secondary School

students on the reality and effects of

Plastic Pollution on our world. Students

from various schools participated in our

interactive workshop which challenged

them to think out of the box on how

plastic pollution can be curbed in our

communities and in our country.

Above: Discussions with Trust

Educators Tamara Goberdhan and

Silene Noel.

Trust Educator, Ms. Silene Noel discusses with students the problems faced because of plastic pollution.

Dr. Maurice Frank lectures

to some students on the

effects of plastic pollution

on marine life and the

consequential effects on

humans.

The Programme involved students

in interactive lectures,

presentations and a field trip to the

south west coast of Trinidad.

Students were taken on an

outreach exercise where they

talked with fishermen and

residents of the visited area about

the effects and problems they face

because of pollution and plastic

pollution.


Students listening to Mr. Kishore Boodram, President of the Claxton Bay Fishing Facility discuss the issues

faced by the fishermen in the area. Discussions were held about the effects of pollution on mangroves,

which serve as nurseries for fish, shrimp, crabs and other marine life. In turn these are important to

fishermen for their livelihoods.

Pollution

Pollution has been and continues to be a global man-made problem affecting all; the environments, humans and

organisms are all at risk. Trinidad and Tobago is among the most polluted small island states in the world. We

dump more than 50 million plastic bottles in our natural environment and 1 million glass bottles every month.

Effects of Pollution:

Sickness, destruction of habitat, ocean acidification, loss of income/ livelihood, global warming, flooding,

depletion of oxygen, contamination of food chain, increase of pests and disease.

Plastic often looks

like tasty morsels

of food. Plastic

bits found in a

fish’s gut.

World Migratory Bird Day 2018

Connecting Schools and Birds Along the Flyways

World Migratory Birds Day (WMBD) was celebrated on the 12th May 2018, and the theme was the Year of the

Bird. Many bird species migrate huge distances, and face many challenges, and these events raise awareness

and support action to support their journeys.

Through the partnership of Wetland Link International and the African Eurasian Water Bird Agreement,

schools were invited to explore their local wetlands, identify the migratory birds that they support and how their

wetland plays a part in the flyway.

The Debe Secondary School Scouts group and the PaP Wildfowl Trust Staff and Trust Member and avid birder,

Rishi Goordial visited the coastal areas and fresh water reservoirs in the Pointe-a-Pierre area where 5 different

migratory bird species were observed and a bird count of over 44 local species recorded all in a four hour period.

The Trust continues its works with Wetland Link International in the conservation of all migratory bird species

along our flyways.

Congratulations and Good Memories

The Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust congratulates and welcomes

Trinidad & Tobago Television (TTT) as it restarts its Communication

with the Nation after “closing its doors” for so many years. The

PaPWFT and TTT go back together many years. One of the incidents we

remember fondly and nostalgically is when in 1983 TTT accompanied

the WFT to Toco, North East Trinidad. The exercise was to cover the

scouts, girl guides longest continuous conservation project on record

(1983- 1987).

This was organised by PaPWFT President/ HQ Scout Commissioner for

the Environment Molly R. Gaskin and Karilyn Shephard VP PaPWFT

together with Scout Group Leader Billy Pyke and Girl Guide Leader

Roslyn Peters. The project included the painting of the Toco Lighthouse

with assistance from the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission

(T&TEC) who loaned their equipment.

It was also the first beach “clean-up” in Trinidad and Tobago. Salybia

Letters to the Trust

The Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust Thanks You , Teachers and visitors for coming and experiencing the

Wonders of Wetlands and the local wildlife that make here HOME. We always look forward to hearing from

YOU!

Rodney Rajkumar

Great place to go. Beautiful birds in a "natural environment" feel. Took lots of nice pictures. You can have

lunch on the tables/benches on the compound. The tour guide was very helpful and the staff were warm and

pleasant. An inexpensive adventure worth trying.

Michael Tuitt

I was pleasantly surprised by this

beautiful place in the midst of an oil

refinery. There is a wide variety of

water fowl in the sanctuary, most of

them I was seeing for the first time,

like the whistling tree ducks, scarlet

ibises bred in captivity, macaws and

many others. Snakes are also there for

viewing and or petting and much more.

Nityanand Maharaj

Lovely getaway. Peaceful and

serene. A great nature walk in

the hustle and bustle of the

Marabella/Pointe a Pierre area.

Chris Merrique

I've been going to the Wildfowl-Trust

since I was a baby and every time I find

myself excited no matter how old I am or

how many times I've went. The scenery is

great and it's a wonderful, educational

and environmental tour with it's tour

guides showing the way. I've always been

amazed with seeing something new every

time I go. For example, today, I went with

my fellow classmates and actually saw

one of the five enormous Pacu fish in the

pond for the first time. Such an amazing

sight. I truly wish for this place to prosper

in preserving the birds and trees and hope

that next year after I have finished my

exams in June, I can come here to help

out with the tours and taking care of the

animals cause of the joy and excitement

it brings to my heart to see animals such

as these in such a natural habitat.
