Wildlife Enforcement

Zoo Ambulance Collecting Animals Trinidad and Tobago has a rich biodiversity and is home to many commercially important species. Illegal and unsustainable trade in wildlife has emerged as a serious threat to the nation’s biodiversity.

It also compromises the sustainability of many endangered species both globally and within the Caribbean region. Many species are wantonly harvested to supply the global demand for exotic pets, meat and luxury goods.

In efforts to protect the integrity of wildlife and wildlife habitats the ZSTT has formed strategic partnerships with the Wildlife Section, Forestry Division and other key institutions, such as IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare) to stem this illegal activity.
Through its collaborative efforts the ZSTT has engaged in training programmes and works in synergy with the Wildlife Section to offer a sanctuary and provide the utmost care for animals which have been seized from illegal activities.
