The work of the Anguilla National Trust is divided into five Programme Areas: Terrestrial and Wetlands Conservation; Marine and Coastal Conservation; Protected Areas; Culture and Heritage; and Public Awareness, Education, and Stewardship.
Within each important area, we run many different projects.
Visit each programme area to see the diversity and importance of our work.
Terrestrial & Wetland Conservation
The dry woodland forest and the grasslands of Anguilla provide a mosaic of habitats and a rich tapestry within an island ecosystem.
Although limited by the island’s small size and elevation, it is very diverse and the range of micro-habitats within it are home to a variety of animals and over 300 species of native plants. Read More…
Marine & Coastal Conservation
Anguilla is famous for its white sand beaches and warm turquoise waters.
But an entire other world exists below the low tide mark and the water’s rippling surface and it is a world that is directly affected by what happens outside of it: its health is directly linked to the health of the land. Read More…
While protected areas management has both natural and social science components, it is firmly rooted in a foundation of ecosystems, habitats, species, ecological integrity, and conservation.
Working within this framework, the Government of Anguilla has thus far designated the East End Pond as a Conservation Area, Fountain Cavern as a National Park, and Big Spring as a Heritage Site.
In addition, a network of six marine parks was established in 1993 in an effort to protect the island’s coral reef and seagrass ecosystems.
Anguilla’s marine parks include Dog Island, Prickly Pear, Little Bay, Shoal Bay-Island Harbour, Sandy Island, and Sombrero Island. Read More…

Why do Anguillians have such a strong connection to the sea? Read More…
Public Awareness, Education & Stewardship
Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders and we are passionate about our work in this area.In order for Anguilla to develop and flourish, respect must be paid to the very resources – human and natural – that support its growth and development.
This means making the connection between a healthy people, a healthy economy, and a healthy environment. Read More…
