The continental origin and proximity of Trinidad to South America, as well as a multiplicity of habitats, have resulted in an unusually diverse fauna. The species lists are impressive: 108 mammals; 460 birds; 55 reptiles and 617 butterflies.
No other area in the West Indies can match this species diversity. The climate at the Nature Centre is tropical and humid. However, its mid-montane location tempers the heat to a pleasant 18-30C. The long dry season, when the striking vegetation is in bloom, lasts from January until May.The balance of the year constitutes the rainy season. Rains, while they can be frequently torrential, are usually very intermittent and good field observations can be made at the Centre throughout the year. The Centre offers simple accommodation in cottages with en suite bathrooms and screened verandas.
