Linking the northern shoulder of South America to the southern end of the Caribbean Archipelago lies the twin island nation of Trinidad and Tobago. This is a prime location for the enjoyment of the natural world, for observing and studying the bewildering variety of plants and animals.
Trinidad, only ten kilometers from the Venezuelan mainland, shares many of the biological characteristics
of its huge neighbour, South America. Tobago, a further forty kilometers to the North east, is typical
of the palm-fringed paradise of the tourist brochures with white sand beaches and clear blue seas.
But like its sister island it enjoys a rich and varied wildlife: biodiversity, if you will, with a
Caribbean flavour, full of sound, colour ---and surprises.
A range of hills rising to almost a thousand meters borders the north coast of Trinidad. Lesser ranges cross the centre of the island and the south coast. These are the most heavily wooded areas and provide habitat for many of the larger animals. The unique Trinidad piping guan or pawi, a highly endangered species, inhabits the forests of the Northern range. The mountain forest gives way to lowland forest on the flat, deciduous forest in the drier areas and mangrove forest along the coastal wetland. From the mountains, streams and rivers flow to the coast forming swamps and marshes. Here migrating birds find a place to rest and
feed while on the offshore islands oceanic birds congregate to breed.
In Tobago the central ridge supports forests less dense than Trinidad’s but still rich in wildlife including several species, which do not occur in Trinidad. The cocrico, or rufous-vented chacacalaca, is one of these and is the national bird of Tobago. A few like the ocellated gecko have been found nowhere else in the world. Indeed, together, with an area of slightly more than five thousand square kilometers, Trinidad and Tobago have the richest biodiversity in the Caribbean.
Unlike the calm waters and mud flats of Trinidad’s West coast, Tobago, on its east coast, has clear water and crashing waves. A different complement of seabirds lives here, typified by the tropicbirds of Little Tobago. Tobago offers pristine snorkelling and diving possibilities along the Carribbean- as well as the northern Atlantic coast. The clear underwater visibility and coral reefs make Tobago attractive for diving also make it a great place for snorkeling, in many locations you can literally begin snorkelling from the edges of the beach. There are coral reefs within a few feet of several beaches and the cliffs along the edges of these beaches have great marine life. Several locations are suitable for snorkeling by small children.
