What is the National Trust?
The Turks and Caicos National
Trust is a non-profit organization that was established in 1992 to protect,
conserve and promote the cultural, historic and natural heritage of the Turks
and Caicos Islands for present & future generations and for the enjoyment of all.
Great Opportunity to visit Heritage Sites!
To celebrate the International Day for Biological Diversity this year, the Turks & Caicos National Trust is announcing FREE ADMISSION to visit heritage sites on Providenciales, North Caicos and Middle Caicos from May 22nd to 26th, 2017 if you are a resident of these islands.
Under the global theme “Biodiversity and Sustainable Tourism”, the Trust aims to enhance people’s awareness at protecting our cultural, historic and natural heritage by encouraging locals and residents to take a tour, free of charge, to Little Water Cay, more popularly known as “Iguana Island”, Cheshire Hall Plantation and Bird Rock Point on Providenciales, Wade’s Green Plantation on North Caicos, and Conch Bar Caves on Middle Caicos.
Biodiversity provides an important foundation for many aspects of tourism. Recognition of the great importance to tourism economies of attractive landscapes and a rich biodiversity underpins the political and economic case for biodiversity conservation. The Turks & Caicos National Trust supports contributing significantly to reducing threats to, and maintain or increase, key wildlife populations and biodiversity values through tourism revenue.
Furthermore, establishing the free admission week shows the high importance the National Trust attaches to the protection of TCI’s heritage for its people and its future generation.
