Highlights of Trinidad and Tobago

Trinidad

Scroll

Just seven miles off the coast of the South American continent to which it was once conjoined, Trinidad benefits from an unusually high diversity of wildlife for an island its size. That mainland ancestry is reflected in its 108 species of mammal (including ocelot, howler monkey, anteater and porcupine), over 50 species of reptile (including anaconda and caiman) and over 600 butterfly species. However, a bird list topping 430 species is the main draw for wildlife enthusiasts. Hundreds of stunning scarlet ibis roost at Caroni swamp, and the Point-a-Pierre Wild Fowl Trust protects endangered species including whistling duck and pintail.
