Nariva Swamp


"A Haven for Endangered Species"

This is Trinidad's most important natural reserve, located in South Trinidad in the county of Nariva, and is protected as a wetland of outstanding scientific value. The towering mangrove forest blots out the sun and aerial roots descend like tentacles over eerie waterways. In the 15km-square Bush Sanctuary, the vegetation changes to palm marshes, hardwood forest, silk cotton trees and giant water lilies. The Swamp has 58 species of mammals, including the last surviving colony of manatee on the island, red howler monkeys, weeping capuchin monkeys, giant anaconda, caiman, 32 species of bats and 171 species of birds.
