Public Awareness Walkabout in Charlotteville

Members of the Tobago Pilot Protected Areas Subcommittee embarked on a village walkabout exercise in the village of Charlotteville on November 28th 2017.   

The exercise was geared towards sharing information about the North-East Tobago Marine pilot protected area and the Main Ridge Forest Reserve with residents of the coastal village, in order to increase awareness of these sites and improve valuing of the natural resource.  The team answered questions about the natural attributes of the site, the need to manage protected areas and they shared a colourful information brochure which featured six plant and animal species that are found in this part of Tobago.
