All of us experience the pleasure of our wildlife heritage. From the luxuriance of the foliage on our drives through the hills to the birds that bring our gardens to life, our environment affects us daily, and will impact our children and theirs. Direct contributions of funds and other support are welcomed from people like you, the company you work for, and other nature conservation trusts, both locally and regionally. We also welcome your ideas for raising funds through corporate events which you may be planning. Please, join us in the fight to save our delicate and imperiled eco-system.

Tribute to Professor Julian S. Kenny

'There are some people you just think will live forever'. So said Janice Hernandez, a former Trustee of the Guardian Life Wildlife Fund, yet her words echoed in the hearts of all of us in the environmental movement in Trinidad & Tobago and the Caribbean.

The Trustees of the Guardian Life Wildlife Fund, of which Professor Julian Kenny was Chairman from 2001 to 2005 and a Trustee from its very inception in 1992, wish to express their profound gratitude for his selfless giving for over six decades. His legacy on things environmental in Trinidad & Tobago is without match. His many writings and copious quality photos of natural flora, fauna and ecosystems, shared so generously, will continue to inspire young generations well into the future.

His was a life worth living indeed. Well done, good soldier, your good deeds and passion will be ever present with your kindred spirits.
