Visit to the Wildfowl Trust – Instagram Style

Last Saturday Rob and I paid a visit to the Wild Fowl Trust. Its a non-profit environmental, non-governmental organization dedicated to environmental education and the conservation of wetlands and waterfowl and is located in Pointe-a-Pierre, Trinidad and Tobago. That’s central of our island. Their mission: Environmental education and public awareness; research, breeding and re-introduction programmes for locally endangered, wetland birds; improved environmental policies through lobbying; and the promotion and implementation of the wise use of natural resources.

Enough educational facts. Rob wanted to do something different with our Saturday morning, so he proposed picnicking at the Wildfowl Trust. YES! YES! Count me in!! Anything to get away from Saturday morning house cleaning! We got there too late for the group tour so we did our own. The walk was nice and short, the birds were cute and some were colourful and the mosquitoes bit in all their glory. All in all, it was a pleasant change to our regular Saturday morning routine.

And yes, I did take photos. Decided to edit them in Instagram. Check out our little activity Instagram Style.

{First stop, the ducks}

{I really love the colours of the Scarlet Ibis. Interesting fact: They get their colour from the rich source of pigments in the algae and small crustaceans that they eat}

{The blue and yellow Macaw}

{Lovely reflection of the sky  & clouds in the water}
