Baseline Biological Survey Report

A baseline biological survey of six pilot protected areas was undertaken in 2017 as part of the Improving Forest and Protected Area Management in Trinidad and Tobago project.  The main aims of the survey were to:

  • Determine the presence and status of as many as possible indicator species (outlined in the IFPAMTT project document) using rapid assessment protocols
  • Map areas of disturbed and degraded vegetation in each pilot protected area
  • Analyse the data gathered to propose indicator taxa lists for each pilot protected area
  • Propose final monitoring methods
