The Scarlet Ibis is one of Trinidad and Tobago's national birds. The bird is protected by law and the Caroni Bird Sanctuary, located in the Caroni Swamp, on the North-West of Trinidad, is its home. The large wetland area was proclaimed a wildlife sanctuary to provide refuge for the Scarlet Ibis and other birds in 1953. Boat tours leave late in the afternoon, meandering through the swamps and enabling visitors to catch a most spectacular view of the Scarlet Ibis flocks as they make their way home at day's end.
