    The full report of the Ecotourism Specialist provides significant detail including templates and information that can be used in establishing ecotourism in the new Protected Area System for Trinidad and Tobago. In Chapter 1, the report details the potential, opportunities and inadequacies for the establishment of ecotourism in the Trinidad and Tobago Protected Area System. This chapter also recommends strategies for the establishment of ecotourism including a user fee system and provides an over view of locally adaptable best practices and a list of useful documents is provided within the References. Chapter 2 provides information to guide Ecotourism Development and Management within the System generally and within the two selected sites specifically. Chapter 3 addresses Barriers, Risks and Threats along with Mitigation Strategies and Chapter 4 deals with Capacity Needs and recommendations.

    Approximately 60 percent of the land area of Trinidad and Tobago is covered by forests and other wooded land. These areas are crucial to the health of the planet and to the livelihoods of the people who depend on the resources they provide. For these reasons, they have been designated as Protected Areas (PAs). The management of these PAs has been fragmentary in nature, owing to the fact that multiple laws have been established regarding their organization and maintenance. Pressure from various stakeholders has also been placed on PAs, posing a threat to biodiversity and causing degradation. The wildlife population has declined in many of these areas, putting species in both terrestrial and nearby marine ecosystems at risk. This project was designed to build upon existing efforts to prevent biodiversity loss and to make the management of PAs in Trinidad and Tobago more effective. The development of a cohesive PA system and the creation of a related funding mechanism were central goals of the project.
