Fund the re-construction of a large viewing platform, walking trail, and interpretative materials on East End Pond Conservation Area, allowing this nationally protected wetlands to be restored in support of its important educational programs and wildlife viewing benefits.
(Note: To support the growth of our Hurricane Relief Fund, 10% of all donations will be allocated to the Hurricane Relief Fund)
East End Pond Conservation Area, Anguilla's only nationally protected wetlands, has been used by Anguilla National Trust since 2001 to drive wetlands educational programs, as well as support eco-tourism as a standout bird and wildlife photography site.
Unfortunately, two existing gazebos providing shaded areas for learning and bird-watching were completely destroyed by Hurricane Irma in 2017.
Though East End Pond's primary use today is in support of outdoor educational programs and nature photography, the pond historically served as an important fresh water source for the East End community for drinking and washing.
This project will involve the construction of a larger, on-water viewing platform to allow ANT to resume its important educational programs and wildlife viewing experiences. The program will also include development of a trail, interpretative education materials to provide valuable context on the site, and revegetation activities to bolster shoreline protection.
