The Pointe-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust was founded in 1966. We are a national, not-for-profit environmental organization dedicated to Environmental Education, Public Awareness and the research, breeding and re-introduction into the wild of locally endangered waterfowl species and other wetland birds. As an inland, freshwater habitat encompassing approximately 32 hectares and 2 lakes, we are uniquely situated within a major petro-chemical and oil-refining complex, making it the only one in the world.

this place is a little gem in the grounds of an oil refinery- brilliant amount of bird species very peaceful with walks to do. Lovely and also great value for money- worth the trip about an hour from POS I'm a taxi.

I am not a nature person but it was quite nice to see all the different types of birds. At the entrance you encounter magnificent peacocks strutting around freely. I did not like the snake exhibit though but others in my group did enjoy it.
