The Turks and Caicos National

National Trust launches new brochure to culminate Tourism Environmental Awareness Month 2016
Setting its sights on boosting the tourism industry this year, and to culminate the celebration of the National Tourism Environmental Awareness Month, the Turks & Caicos National Trust is launching the "Visit our Heritage Sites" brochure today, Nov. 30th, 2016.
Carrying the tagline “Explore beyond the sun, sea and sand”, the National Trust hopes to promote heritage preservation while enhancing the country’s reputation as a premier Caribbean destination for both leisure and business travelers.
The brochure features Iguana Island, or Little Water Cay, the only place in the world to see the endemic Turks & Caicos Rock Iguanas; 18th century historic places namely, Cheshire Hall Plantation on Providenciales and Wade’s Green Plantation on North Caicos; Conch Bar Caves on Middle Caicos – one of the largest living caves in the region and home to four species of bats; and Bird Rock Point, an attractive area of coppice woodland located on the North-eastern side of Provo.
The National Trust is soliciting support from local stakeholders, government units, heritage practitioners and volunteers, and all those working towards preservation of TCI’s heritage to promote and disseminate the brochure. As the Tourist Board puts it, ‘Tourism is Key, it starts with Me’. Through this collaborative effort, local tourism partners can promote the delight of TCI’s most stunning sites to many visitors, and educate the country’s people on the importance of tourism to the island and the region.
Printed copies of the brochure are available at the National Trust office in Downtown, Providenciales.
