Apparently the owners have died. No one has taken it on. No feeders. Rather overgrown and neglected. You will see just as many birds in the forest.

As others have reported, this place has the feel of the abandoned InGen facility in the second Jurassic Park film. There was a light on but the whole place is covered in very slippery mould and clearly deserted. NONETHELESS, we got some good photos of...More

As others have commented, this is a very run-down attraction but it gives you an opportunity to see various local birds up close if you turn-up at 4.00pm for feeding time. The approach lane is steep and unsurfaced but if you like watching birds it...More

This bird sanctuary needs supporters. It's a great idea but in desperate need of some money spent on it. Feeding is at 8 and 4 and donations of 10 TT dollars pp help support it. Shame it's so run down. Lots of birds to see.

It is still worth a visit but it's obvious that the sanctuary has fallen on hard times. It's on the site of an old cocoa plantation which was devastated by a hurricane in the 60's or 70's, such a shame, it could be a very...More
