SOS (Save our Sea Turtles) Tobago is one of the islands’ most vibrant community-based conservation groups. SOS president and founding member Tanya Clovis and Giancarlo Lalsingh, one of its most vibrant volunteers and resident photographer, discuss the organisation’s critical work in turtle conservation
Tobago offers the visitor a wide range of touring options. It’s possible to drive around the island in a single day, but for the best experience, take it slow. History buffs will revel in the island’s historic sites, legacy of the 31 separate occasions Tobago was lost and conquered over the centuries. And even if you just stick to the well-known beaches and tourist sites, there’s still lots to see.
Tobago was once joined to the South American mainland (but not to Trinidad!), and has inherited a continental legacy of plants, birds, insects, mammals and topography. Its small size, 21 miles long and seven miles wide, offers easy access to tropical rain forests, idyllic white sand beaches, waterfalls and lagoons.
